Exclusive Video: Danny Thompson Reacts to ‘Virtuoso’ Label
Danny Thompson doesn’t want people to keep using the words “virtuoso” and “genius” to describe his musicianship.
Those who are waiting with anticipation for Connected, his new album out later this week, might disagree.
But in the exclusive video below, the modest maestro says: “Just say, ‘He can play a bit.’ Or on my gravestone, put, ‘He could play a bit.’”
Connected features tracks he’s worked on with John Martyn, Barbara Dickson and Tom Robinson, plus a long-lost Bert Jansch recording. Buy it here. http://bit.ly/O7S4Ew
