Daniel Lanois has just announced a gig in London this coming July with his current project 'Black Dub'.
The multi award-winning Canadian uber producer and soloist in his own right has not been in the UK for many a year, but will make an appearance at the Jazz Cafe in Camden on 27th July. 'Black Dub' is the name of his forthcoming album (release date TBC), the band for which features Daniel on guitar, jazz drummer Brian Blade, Daryl Johnson (Neville Brothers/ Emmylou Harris) on bass and singer Trixie Whitley (daughter of the late American singer/ guitarist Chris Whitley). If you want to know what it sounds like - check the embedded video to the right for the guys (and gal) in action live in the studio - and head on over to www.youtube.com/user/OfficialDanielLanois for more info and videos from Black Dub.
Daniel's music career is now in its fourth decade and has included production duties for U2 (including song-writing), Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan, Sinéad O'Connor, Ron Sexsmith and this other producer/ musician you may have heard of - Brian Eno.
Tickets for the way-too-bijou Jazz Cafe date cost the way-too-cheap-for Daniel Lanois price of just £17.50 + a few shillings for booking fee, and you can get your hands on them this Monday (8th March) at 9AM sharp.
Don't be turning-up at 9:20AM wondering what happened to the tickets, 'cos they'll be gone and you'll only have yourself to blame! See you on Monday morning...
A motorbike accident forced Daniel to cancel the 2010 dates, but we are pleased to report that the rescheduled dates have now been announced and will take place on Sunday 31st July and Monday 1st August at the Jazz Cafe.
