Calvin Cooke, Darick Campbell, Chuck Campbell and Aubrey Ghent are the extraordinary members of The Slide Brothers – the greatest living musicians who embody the Sacred Steel tradition. The compelling music these legendary artists create extends far beyond sacred steel to encompass rock, blues and soul, all celebrated with a sound that is uniquely their own. Robert Randolph, the most successful artist to emerge from the Sacred Steel tradition, encouraged these iconic performers to share their outstanding gifts with the world.
This eleven-track collection features some of the most thrilling electric slide guitar playing ever captured. The band blends rock, funk and even the deepest blues with a ferocity that will startle fans of Duane Allman, Derek Trucks and even Muddy Waters. Two songs from the album celebrate the music of Elmore James, the Chicago blues legend who made his mark as a master of the slide guitar technique that would later influence greats including Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and, of course Robert Randolph.
