Epiphone's Kirk Douglas
and his band The Roots, who will also serve as The Tonight Show band starting next year, have made a new album with Elvis Costello, the musical omnivore who always rises to the occasion when he gets some time away from The Imposters to improvise over some new grooves. In some ways, Elvis never changes. He's a mile wide in his tastes and sometimes he doesn't stay quite long enough to really go deep. But his heart is just as wide and welcoming and if this new track, "Walk Us Uptown," is any indication, Costello and The Roots have brewed up something special. They had fun, so why shouldn't you? Check out the lyric video and the super cool Art Deco portable turntable that ?uestlove brought along for the presentation. And you can bet Captain Kirk's Prince-battered but now-repaired Epiphone '61 Crestwood is all over this album.
