How cool! I am playing a concert with Jackson Browne and his "big band" at the Lummis Park Benefit in Highland Park on June 1. This large band includes Bob Glaub (bass) and Fritz Lewak (drums) and will have two lead guitar players, plus backup/solo singers from the great Fred Martin Levite Camp. In addition, Jackson will invite up some of his friends who specialize in Latin acoustic instruments. The set-list for this show will be forthcoming, as well as what other artists are scheduled to play. I know one of the acts appearing will be CULTURE CLASH, the hilarious and trenchant comedy troup.

The benefit is to help the local area of Highland Park and the Lummis Park legacy (initially for library funding). The park is close to Jackson's grandfathers house, an official historic site in Los Angeles, that is still lived in by Jackson's brother, Severin Browne; a great guy and wonderful artist himself, and whose albums I have been privileged to be a player on for many years.
