It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Bruce Hornsby’s music keeps being re-cool-ified. Hornsby is the very exemplar of dad-rock: Ninety-nine percent of the young population has been blasted with the piano man’s work on a family road trip at some point. So it stands to reason that Tupak should have a mellow moment sampling “That’s Just the Way It Is”; and that more recently, indie-rock mountain man Justin Vernon would co-opt Hornsby’s icy piano sound. But what of Hornsby himself? Currently working with his band the Noisemakers, Hornsby has also made bluegrass records, gigged with a jazz band and even toured as part of the Grateful Dead. It makes perfect sense, then, that he’s playing with the groovy jam-leaning pianist Marco Benevento at this riverside show. Expect to be swimming in melody.
