Edie Brickell & The Gaddabouts have announced the release of their sophomore album, Look Out Now, which comes out April 3 on racecarLOTTA Records. Featuring renowned songwriter and musician Edie Brickell alongside Steve Gadd, Pino Palladino and Andy Fairweather-Low, The Gaddabouts are essentially a modern-day supergroup. The new, 17-song, double disc album was recorded in New York City in April and July of 2011. According to Brickell:
“The song was a true improvisation, spur of the moment. Steve chose to start the record with this improv because it feels great and sets the tone for a playful band dynamic heard throughout the album. It’s a tribute and a nod to the days when bands played so well they were recorded live in the studio together—a live performance comes through on every track. This double disc represents 3 weeks together in 2011.“
In addition to the quartet, the album features Ronnie Cuber (sax, vocals), Larry Goldings (keys, accordian), Pedro Martinez (percussion), Axle Tosca (piano) and Andrea Zonn (violin).
