Singer/Songwriter/Pianist Bruce Hornsby Interviewed at AAJ...and More

For more than 20 years, singer/songwriter, pianist/composer, and band-leader Bruce Hornsby, has proven to be a survivor in an ever changing music environment. From winning multiple awards including a Grammy for Best New Artist in 1987 for the multi-platinum album The Way It Is (RCA, 1986) with his band The Range, to dual releases in 2007 (on Sony/Legacy)--a foot-stomping bluegrass duo Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby and the swinging jazz trio outing Camp Meeting, with drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist Christian McBride--Hornsby has thrived in a variety of settings.

AAJ Contributor Mark F. Turner spoke with Hornsby recently, about his latest release, Levitate (Verve, 2009)--the first studio disc to feature his longtime band The Noisemakers--his first Broadway musical, SCKBSTD, starting out on guitar, and much more in Bruce Hornsby: The Master of Levitation, published today at AAJ.
