Jeff Bridges is the self-titled debut from actor Jeff Bridges, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of a fallen country music legend in the 2009 film Crazy Heart.
Produced by his Crazy Heart collaborator and friend of thirty years, T Bone Burnett, the album is an organic extension of their personal, professional and musical friendship. Recorded in LA and Brooklyn, NY, it features material from world class songwriters, including Burnett’s Crazy Heart collaborators the late Stephen Bruton ("What A Little Bit of Love Can Do", "Nothing Yet"), John Goodwin ("Maybe I Missed The Point", "Everything But Love", "The Quest"), Greg Brown ("Blue Car") and Bo Ramsay ("Either Way").
Top Customer Reviews
In a series of interviews ahead of the release of 'Jeff Bridges', Bridges made it clear that he has always had a love of music, and his singing and playing in 'Crazy Heart' merely brought this more to the public's attention rather than sparked a new musical interest, or worse, a cynical response to the soundtrack's success.
This album is not simply a Country album; indeed, it is much more. Yes, opener 'What A Little Bit Of Love Can Do' is Country flavoured with pedal steel and tight, catchy harmonies, but there is also an outright pop element with its bouncy melody and rock'n'roll organ stabs. It's second track 'Falling Short' that asserts the album's breadth with the soft dual vocals and echoing musical backdrop suggesting early 70s folkrock introspection and sincerity. Third 'Everything But Love' is maybe the most Country with its central pedal steel.
Bridges' voice is distinctive because we know it so well, but it also has a gentle authority. I think the T-Bone Burnett production has been clever in pairing him so often with female harmony - not that this is necessary - but it just works. Fourth track 'Tumbling Vine' returns to the folkrock vein with atmospheric fuzzed guitar riffs and resonating cymbals. Fifth 'Nothing Yet' is wonderfully simple and puts Bridges' soft growl to the fore, though again tempered by the understated, almost hesitant female vocal accompaniment.
I'll refer to only one more of the ten tracks, and that's the cover of Greg Brown's 'Blue Car'.Read more ›
If you own the previous Jeff bridges CD "be here soon" then you may be surprised when you listen to this CD.
Its a leap ahead in every way with quality songs you will be going back to listen to again and again without doubt.
Stand out tracks for me were "What a little bit of love can do" and "Falling short(written by Jeff)".
Don't waste any more time reading these reviews, Just go order the CD now..
You won't be disappointed..
He was good in that but anyone hoping that film talent will be translated to disc format is in for a disappointment. It's quite a short record, with relatively few tracks. Bridges involvement is pretty limited; he wrote only 3 tracks and only sings along to other's tunes on the rest.
Having listenend to it a couple of times now I'd be hard pushed to hum a tune from any of it. But, the packaging of the LP is of good quality, the pressing (I bought the LP) and recording is fine and as background with a glass of red it makes a good easy listen. Just don't think that you are going to discover the real 'Jeff'.
