Standing In The Breach, Jackson's fourteenth studio album, is a collection of ten songs, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope, and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life.
"This is my ideal band, with some of my favorite players, all of whom appear on the new CD, and whose combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs," says Jackson. "The interplay between Val McCallum and Greg Leisz on this album - the effortlessness of their chemistry is a gift really, that just dropped into my lap. I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour."
Currently, Jackson Browne is on a solo tour through August 23, with two band shows on August 4 and 5, in a co-bill with John Fogerty at PNC Bank Arts Center (Holmdel, NJ) and Jones Beach (Wantagh, NY).
