Throughout his long career, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Randall Bramblett has influenced a wide range of musicians, with music that fuses roots-rock and the blues to powerful effect. Click the link above to hear Bramblett perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Bramblett was raised on musicians such as James Brown and Ray Charles, and he continues to incorporate some of their sounds into his own work. His jazz- and blues-inspired piano, organ and saxophone work defined his solo albums in the mid-'70s, as well as the success of his jazz/rock band Sea Level. Bramblett has worked with many prominent musicians, but he's maintained a strong reputation as both a solo artist and a bandleader.

On his seventh solo album, Now It's Tomorrow, Bramblett crafts a revelatory blues-rock experience. Though it incorporates some experimental instrumentation, the disc also retains the singer's classic, rootsy appeal.
