Ronnie Baker Brooks announces first album in 10 years

Ronnie Baker Brooks announces first album in 10 years

15th November 2016 0 By Jon Deaux

Ronnie Baker Brooks was born in Chicago, and started playing guitar around age six. At 19, he joined his father Lonnie Brooks, who by then had influenced some of the most well-known bluesman of our history: Jimmy Reed, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Johnny Winter, and Junior Wells. For 12 years the two would tour together, putting Ronnie out front with Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, and Koko Taylor.

Times Have Changed, Brooks’ first album in ten years, carries with it the weight of grown perspective and time spent perfecting old material. Brooks worked it with Steve Jordan, whose work runs from Keith Richards to Stevie Wonder, John Mayer and Eric Clapton.

A veritable who’s who is guesting on the record, from Big Head Todd & The Monsters mainman Todd Mohr, R&B/soul singers Bobby “Blue” Bland (one of the last recordings he made) and Angie Stone, legendary guitarists Steve Cropper (Stax, Booker T. & the MG’s) and Eddie Willis (Motown, Funk Brothers), rapper Al Kapone, and of course Ronnie’s father, Lonnie Brooks.

You can pre-order Times Have Changed On on CD and double vinyl, from the MLG Store.
