New Grass Revival Featuring Leon Russell - Live (DVD)
The New Grass Revival revolutionized Bluegrass music, incorporating everything including gospel, reggae, rock and modern jazz to their traditional sound.
Leon Russell, the ultimate session musician collaborated with The New Grass Revival and took the sound to another level combining his Keyboard skills and unique gravely voice with the fantastic sounds of the band.
Filmed at the Perkins Palace in California on 15th May 1980, this DVD captures the enormous talent of all the performers. ‘Newgrass’ became a generic label due to the success of The New Grass Revival, their image of long hair, electrified instruments and their unique material meant they gained a very hip reputation, which grew rapidly. Taking traditional bluegrass like that played by Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley and changing it to varying degrees, Leon Russell and the New Grass Revival created a sound to remember.
