Why See Ry Cooder?
Grammy Winner Ry Cooder Is Back With A New Album
After over five decades of fearless pioneering, its still difficult to put multi-talented guitarist and singer songwriter Ry Cooder into any one box. Ranked 31 on Rolling Stone's 100 Best Guitarists list, Cooder evolved from teenage blues phenomenon in the company of Captain Beefheart to innovative world-music explorer, cementing his honored place in music history as a founder of the Buena Vista Social Club. Don't miss the living legend as he returns to the American road after a nine-year absence, supporting the 2018 release of his 17th solo album The Prodigal Son.
A fitting title for the offering, this latest LP is Cooder's first release in six years. Revisiting the early blues of his early career, the album is a mix of brand new original material inspired by the shifting morality of present day society and interpretations of the traditional blues of Blind Willie Johnson, the Stanley Brothers and Blind Roosevelt Graves amongst others.
