About the artist
After all, this is a man who did so much to help invent rock & roll. Yet what’s most impressive about Jerry Lee Lewis’ moving new Rock & Roll Time album -- recorded in Memphis and beautifully produced by Steve Bing and Jim Keltner -- is that it does not sound like a musical legend simply resting on his laurels. Rather, Rock & Roll Time captures the soulful sound of a musical master expressing his lifelong love of music and still showing that distinctive ‘Killer’ instinct. Yes, the album features guest appearances from a few generations of Jerry Lee’s famous fans including Keith Richards, Robbie Robertson, Ron Wood, Neil Young, Shelby Lynne, Doyle Bramhall II, Nils Lofgren, Derek Trucks, Daniel Lanois and more. Yet the vibe on Rock & Roll Time is more warm, rootsy and band-oriented than most all-star affairs.
