Brian Setzer is set to release a new album of instrumental material, called Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL, this week. I think this sounds like a pretty interesting album, featuring Setzer’s trademark rockabilly style on all instrumental tracks.
The track listing for the album is:
1. Blue Moon Of Kentucky
4. Earl’s Breakdown
5. Far Noir East
7. Go-Go Godzilla
8. Lonesome Road
9. Hillbilly Jazz Meltdown
10. Hot Love
After hearing about this album and checking out Setzer’s site, I saw that he has a page dedicated to his guitars. As you would expect, he has quite a collection of Gretsch guitars. Check them out here.

I’m not sure how i feel about an instrumental record by Brian. But it could be interesting. I’ll check it out.
Here are two article/interviews with Brian Setzer about the ‘Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL’ album:
Guitar Player Magazine
Guitar World Magazine
Thanks for the links! The Guitar Player interview was actually where I first heard about the album. I haven’t read the Guitar World interview, though.

Brian’s new album is great. Once again he amazes with his apparent effortless blending of styles within one song and yet makes it cohesive, fluid, melodic, clean, interesting and pretty. Anyone would benefit from his approach to guitar playing and I love this new venture (no pun intended, ah what the heck, hehe). Thanks Brian.
