My first reaction to this fantastic live CD release by Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers, titled 'Bride Of Noisemakers' is a simple WOW! It's no secret that true musicianship (musical ability to play songs well live, great versatility & well orchestrated crowd interaction) by musicians truly shows in live performances & thus relatively very few as such are released (as CD or DVD recordings). But this is it : a great performance in the highest order. Some of the tracks being played in a way (innovation/improvisation) that they 'sound/feel' better than album versions e. g. "Candy Mountain Run" from CD 'Halcyon Days' played very well & is from Disc 2 (first track "The Windup/Big Rock Candy Mountain/Candy Mountain Run") or very close to album version e. g. "Cyclone" from CD 'Levitate', played live very well from Disc 1 (first track). Disc 1 (has 12 tracks), Disc 2 (13 tracks) & MP3 download Disc 3 (has 2 tracks : great live performances of their earlier 2 hits that made Bruce Hornsby famous including winning a Grammy for The Best New Artist "The Way It Is" plays for just over 10 minutes & "Mandolin Rain" playing for just under 7 minutes). The songs in this 3 CD release are a well representation of Bruce Hornsby from the great debut with The Rangers to his wonderful career with The Noisemakers.Read more ›

It just doesn't get much better than Bruce and the Noisemakers live. The band is tight, the arrangements are loose, and the whole thing is just a lot of fun to experience. You can almost hear these guys listening to each other, and each guy is fantastic at what he does. Bruce, JV, Sonny, Doug, JT and Bobby are top-notch. If you want to go deeper than the studio cuts, or just get introduced to the best of jam, buy this album. The whole thing is worth it for the "Fortunate Son/Comfortably Numb" mashup alone.

Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers are the best live band still touring. Every show is a mystery because there isn't a set list. They can play all different types of music ranging from Rock, Jazz, and Bluegrass. This album really showcases some the finest live versions of his music and the band. There is even some Grateful Dead music thrown in at the end with the finest post Jerry version of "Standing on the Moon." Buy this now!

I don't know how I've gone my entire life without ever hearing of Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers, but I'm sure glad I discovered them today.
I haven't even gotten through the full album yet so I won't try to describe it in detail, but after hearing the samples I deemed it worth the $3.99 leap of faith. Good. Call. I like rock music and blues and jazz and folk and classical piano and, somehow, this music seems to have it all. There are some covers, but I don't mind covers when they're done well. And speaking of covers, I'm definitely intrigued by the album art--and pleased that this download included a PDF file of liner notes as well as a couple of bonus tracks.
Even if I only hear this once it'll be worth the experience/exploration. It's creative, high quality music that's oddly comforting--kind of like when I hear music from my parents' generation. Which I guess makes sense since Bruce Hornsby has apparently been around for awhile...and it sounds like that's a good thing.

Bruce Hornsby first hit the big time almost twenty five years ago with his number one hit "The Way It Is". While he doesn't sells the number of albums he did back in his salad days, he still shows off the great musical chops that made him standout from the normal Top 40 radio sound. This album nicely captures the live experience of Mr. Hornsby and his tight band. If you are looking for a well oiled musical group that makes mature and intelligent music, then give this cd a listen.

GOD! These guys can play....this is soooo fun. It took balls to play Comfortably Numb...I mean seriously, what kind of musicians would gild such a lily? They undertook the task..oh hell yes, they did....and oh, Roger Waters must be proud.

I was not a Bruce Hornsby fan. I was vaguely familiar with some of his radio hits. The thing that impressed me most about him was the knowledge that Bela Fleck considered him enough of a musician to record and play with him from time to time.So when Bela and the Flecktones played recently in Salt Lake City with Bruce and the Noisemakers as their closing act, I figured I would see a decent set to close out the night. I did not expect to see a band that could hold a candle to the Flecktones in terms of musicianship. Boy, was I surprised. It was a totally delightful concert. This album captures the musicianship I heard that night. The sound quality is amazing for a live album. The songs, even those you haven't heard on the radio, range from good to great. The jams are fantastic. For five bucks, it is a steal.
