‘David Axelrod’ is a classic album, blending the past and the present, featuring one of David’s longest standing collaborators Lou Rawls and the street poetry of LA rapper Ras Kass. Recorded last year in the famous Capitol B studio (which David made his home in the ‘60s), over rhythm tracks originally laid down by Carol Kaye, Earl Palmer, Howard Roberts and Joe Sample in 1968, ‘David Axelrod’ features 9 new Axelrod compositions lovingly composed, arranged and conducted by David Axelrod, produced by David Axelrod and H.B Barnum and featuring a roll call of some of the best studio musicians in the world. Musically, the album is pure Axelrod, evoking the sounds of his ’Songs Of Innocence’ and ‘Songs Of Experience’ masterpieces.
