T Bone Burnett will premiere “The Speaking Clock Revue,” a multi-artist extravaganza, Oct. 16 at the Wang Center in Boston and Oct. 20 at the Beacon Theater in NYC. Among the performers are Elton John & Leon Russell, John Mellencamp, Elvis Costello, Gregg Allman, Ralph Stanley, Jeff Bridges, Punch Brothers, Karen Elson, and newcomers The Secret Sisters. More after the jump.
Both the Boston and the NYC performance will be presented in a revue format, which Burnett hopes will bring to live audiences the excitement of creating music in a recording studio.
The privacy and the intimacy of the studio afford artists the freedom to create, but something thrilling happens in getting away from the machines and into the live communication of real time storytelling in the larger community. – T Bone Burnett
