Chuck Leavell himself will be involved in my second album "The Chuck Leavell Project" as a special guest. It makes me especially happy to have on board the man who the entire album is about. Chuck won't just be heard on piano, he will also sing two of the 12 tracks!
Right from the start, he showed his enthusiasm for my new project and immediately offered to be personally involved on some of the songs. One of the tracks will be a cover from Eric Clapton's Unplugged album, on which Nathan East will also be heard on bass. Nathan and Chuck recorded the legendary album live together in 1992 as part of Eric Clapton's band.
I will meet Chuck at the end of June at a Rolling Stones concert in Stuttgart to discuss all the necessary details about the recordings and the project's progress.
