Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Grammy-award winning guitarist/singer/songwriter ANDERS OSBORNE blends blues, rock and roll and New Orleans funk and R&B to create a distinctive genre-bending style that has captivated music fans and fellow performers alike. He wrote "Watch The Wind Blow By," a #1, million-selling country hit for Tim McGraw and two tracks on bluesman Keb' Mo's Grammy-winning album Slow Down. American Patchwork is an intensely soulful album, ranging from gentle ballads to burning rockers, including some truly amazing guitar playing. Galactic's Stanton Moore and Corrosion of Conformity's Pepper Keenan guest.

5.0 out of 5 stars His gifts as a guitar player are significant July 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
The rock era is pushing 60 and anyone who's been listening carefully will have to admit that enthusiasm for contemporary releases can never include any believable claims of originality. That's okay because much of the best rock is artful theft anyway. There remains plenty of room for personal expression, however, and there's always a place for great songwriting.

Which brings us to Anders Osborne. His gifts as a guitar player are significant, and if one is led to make comparisons to Duane Allman, that's hardly a negative. There are only so many notes that can be phrased so many different ways. But the human voice is something else; no two are the same. When that unique voice is used in service of personal expression so emotionally intense it feels like an explosion, you've really got something special.

American Patchwork is the album Osborne fans have been waiting for since Ash Wednesday Blues. The record is a triumph in several ways-- as a coherent musical statement, as an account of one man's struggle to transcend his own existential problems, as a tale of New Orleans loss and recovery, as a rumination on the entropic inevitability of death and a possible redemption by love. The back story is that it's an album about recovery from substance abuse, but to leave it at that is like saying John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band was an album about primal therapy.

Osborne contrasts electric and acoustic modes artfully to express the roller coaster of emotions he takes us through on American Patchwork. The record begins with the ominous buzzing of multi-layered guitars that lead us "On the Road to Charlie Parker," a hair-raising metaphor for genius cut down at the knees by heroin. Osborne keeps it terse and focused, adding to the drama by not overplaying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anders is Amazing... July 23, 2010
By zimmwx
Format:MP3 Music
Anders Osbourne is the best Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, guitarist that you have never heard of. Why is that? Is it bad management? Is his foundation in New Orleans too deep? I cannot be sure. But I do know this: He is an amazing talent that needs to be heard. Yes, he is the embodiment of NOLA soul, funk, and blues. But his searches into truly American music are far reaching. His albums to this point have been front porch, back porch, 2nd line, and introspective. This one is in your face. Notice that I didn't say "in your face like a shiny strand of Mardi Gras beeds." This album goes beyond New Orleans. Its funk and rock and delta and dusty road all in one. Why are you reading this? Do you still doubt this man? Start with this: download this album. Then read about Anders' life and loves and losses. Then download the rest of his catalog. Each is a milepost marker in the life and times of a soul on display for all to hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful stuff May 8, 2010
By Jim
Format:MP3 Music
Anders Osborne's latest release shows his versatiloity as a musician and skill as one of today's top rock songwriters. In the past 10 years, he's treated us with the Louisiana sounds of "Bury the Hatchet" and stripped-down soul on "Coming Home." His new CD, "American Patchwork" simply rocks. I saw him live twice last week -- once in a small club, the other time as a lead-in to Galactic and Pearl Jam at an outdoor festival. The live shows -- like this CD -- featured Anders with the Stanton Moore Trio. The crowd was on its feet each time. Buy the CD -- but especially see him live. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Whole New Groove June 14, 2010
By Smitty
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is somewhat of a change for Anders on this latest release. This album is a little more rock and roll and less of the blues and funk that we are all used to. With that said, it is an awesome collection of songs by three VERY talented musicians. On guitar, Anders Osborne, bringing his unique style to these well written lyrical compositions. On keys, Robert Walters, of Greyboy Allstars and 20th Century Congress fame. ...and on drums, 'Stanton Moore the drumming whore', Galactic, Garage A Trois, Stanton Moore Trio, Moore and More, to name a few. One of the pleasures of this disc is to actually hear Stanton play a measured rock and roll beat which can be said really displays his creative range. Noting that point, it is also easy to point out that Anders too is showing his range by playing a little more rock and roll. Over all a very good album. If you get a chance, catch these guys performing this music live. I did an it was amazing. Will Bernard, Stanton Moore, Robert Walters, Anders Osborne AND George Porter. Wow. Was that awesome!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack for Summer 2010 August 4, 2010
By moboman
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Anders Osborne has voice. His album, American Patchwork, is a humble soulful expression of putting things back together and returning from something adverse. It is a story of the American Dream. Osborne provides the soundtrack for my Summer of 2010, his album playing often, finding myself searching through it for all the gems and twisted truths, the chunky grooves,
--Osborne starts with a grim tune about going to the crossroad--"On The Road to Charlie Parker", and ends with a cautionary beautiful lilt, pleading for the power of asking--"Call on me". In between, there are reminiscent moments like you've heard this before. Shades of Allmann Bros. and Leon Russell. Phenomenal guitar work, creative and innovative in a classic way.
--Recorded for Alligator Records, this is an unusual choice by this primarily blues label. Anders Osborne channels the best of rock's past with a new lyrical verve and the band is from New Orleans so you know they're great.
--I suggest getting the album and digging in. There are some GREAT songs in here.
--Moboman ([...] Long Beach, Ca)

Some other reviews were not so kind to this album and I can understand. Living Room and Ask Wednesday's Blues may remain, arguably, Anders best albums to date. Read more

I love this guy's music but this album is disappointing. It sounds like his first two records back in the late 1990s, which were okay but not as rich as his later ones. Read more
