Lost in the river“Lost on the river” is the title of the album of the supergroup The new basement tapes, recently released by Universal. The project has aroused much interest among critics, for various reasons. First, because – as you can guess from the name that it was desired to give the band – the musicians involved have worked to some texts written by Bob Dylan in 1967, when that is the songwriter of Duluth, convalescing after the motorcycle accident, produced and recorded together The Band many hitherto officially unpublished (“The basement tapes complete – the bootleg series vol. 11″, composed of 139 tracks, was finally released by Columbia only a few weeks ago). Second “Lost on the river” is interesting because it is a hard dense and complex, assembled by excellent musicians, all young people (if we exclude Elvis Costello) and, above all, coordinated by T Bone Burnett. It is useless to dwell on the latter and his work, both as a composer and producer. Just probably say – also to bring in these lines a less widespread news – that was the same producer of Dylan to put in his hands some lyrics that Dylan wrote at the time of grace and not set to music. Burnet did the rest and he did it in the best way. First, bringing together some of the most inspired musicians of the indie and new folk scene of the time (along with the aforementioned Costello): Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes) and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons). And then dealing him with sound. The album was recorded in just two weeks, it’s great and varied, despite the impression of Burnett paste all twenty tracks.
