Brian Setzer Brings Guitar Insanity To 'Setzer Goes Instru-mental!'

Brian Setzer Brings Guitar Insanity To 'Setzer Goes Instru-mental!'

New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) After 43 years of honing his craft, Brian Setzer is releasing his first all-instrumental album showcasing what has made him one of the most legendary and credible artists in music today. He is universally respected by his peers; many regularly list him as one of the greatest living guitar players today.

The rockabilly legend, big band impresario, and all-around cool cat Brian Setzer gets up close and personal with his iconic Gretsch on 'Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL!,' out April 19th on Surfdog Records. Known for his lightning-quick finger picking and hybrid rockabilly-jazz technique, Setzer's 7th solo album is an entirely instrumental collection of eleven songs that find the New York native stretching the limits of his already bible-thick catalog.

'Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL!' is filled with new takes on the classic model Setzer has perfected - one need look no further than the dexterous and layered "Go-Go Godzilla," honky-tonk jazz of "Lonesome Road," and 1-2 step jazz found on "Cherokee." Setzer also finds time for a little experimentation, breaking out the banjo for the hillbilly stomp of "Earl's Breakdown."

'Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL!' was produced by Setzer and his longtime collaborator Dave Darling (Tom Waits, Jack Johnson) and recorded with his trio. Setzer's guitar and banjo take centerstage on this new collection, backed by drummer Noah Levy and bassist Johnny "Spaz" Hatton.
