David Lindley

David Lindley is the consummate musician's musician. A much-respected session player, Lindley has added his melodic string playing to albums by a lengthy list of artists, including Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, Rory Block, Ry Cooder, Warren Zevon, Terry Reid, David Blue, James Taylor, David Crosby, and Graham Nash. From 1971 until 1981, Lindley played a guiding role on Jackson Browne's recordings and concert performances. Lindley's eclectic approach provided the foundation for his own bands, Kaleidoscope (1967 -- 1970) and El Rayo X (1981 -- 1990).

A native of Southern California, Lindley began playing banjo as a teenager and soon added the fiddle. By his late teens, he had acquired a reputation as California's best young instrumentalist, winning the Topanga Canyon banjo and fiddle competition five times.

After playing with a series of traditional folk and bluegrass bands, including the Smog City Trestle Hangers, the Mad Mountain Ramblers, and the Dry City Scat Band, Lindley joined a rock band, the Rodents. When the group disbanded, he formed his own group, Kaleidoscope, that blended traditional music with rock influences.

Accepting an invitation to join Jackson Browne's band in 1971, Lindley remained with the singer/songwriter's group for a decade. When not touring or recording with Browne, he continued to explore a variety of projects. In 1979, he began working with Ry Cooder, contributing heavily to his albums Bop Till You Drop and the soundtrack to the film The Long Riders. The collaboration continues and in the early '90s, Lindley and Cooder toured as a duo.

Lindley found time to work on his music, as well. Shortly after releasing a solo album, El Rayo-X, he formed a band of the same name with Bernie Larsen (guitar), Jorge Calderon (bass), Ian Wallace (drums), and Ras "Baboo" Pierre (percussion).

In 1990, Lindley began performing in a duo that he shared with Jordan-born percussionist Hani Naser. The two musicians continued to tour and record together until 1995.

Lindley has collaborated with avant-garde guitarist and ethnomusicologist Henry Kaiser on several albums based on their field recordings. A two-week field recording expedition to Madagascar in 1991 yielded six albums of Malagasy music, including the award-winning, two-volume set A World Out of Time. A trip to Norway in 1994 inspired two CDs, Sweet Sunny North, Vol. 1 & Vol. 2. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

I saw Lindley in a night club in Santa Cruz CA. in the late 70's. I lived in Half Moon Bay at the time. We danced all night. What a night that was, His brand new music at the time was very exciting and wonderful, Ill never forget that beautiful night.
Saw DL at the Redwood Mtn Fair last weekend. No band, too many insignifican t stories and he did not play hardly any upbeat music. Disappointed , because I have seen DL about 10 times where he was on fire.

Love David Lindley! We get to see him soon in Monte Rio CA (Russian River) in a small venue. Then he's off to tour Europe and the US with Jackson Browne -hope to catch them in Berkeley in July. His contribution s to Jackson's albums in the '70's made them soar - still some of my favorite music of all time.

Mr Dave is the best! Love Love Love His Mercury Blues, definitive rock and roll.
You need to add the rest of the Mr Dave discography.
absolutely amazing to see live, i had to opportunity to see him twice up in garberville
Disappointin g to say the least that Pandora doesn't feature David in more selections. One guy on YouTube describes Lindley as Jackson Browne's 'bandleader, ' and I think that very apt. He (both solo and the excellent duo with himself and 'Wally,' the amazing drummer from El Rayo-X) have several very fine self-publish e d CD's out. So far I only have 'Twango Bango Deluxe,' though.
It's a shame that Pandora does't have access to the self-issued Tokyo CD's, the Lindley/Kais e r Madgascar recordings, and the Cooder/lindl e y disks. This guy is an icon- going to see him live tomorrow night. polyester forever!
I haven't quit listening to "El Rayo-X" since 1981. The guy can play anything, but his whining guitar sound and reggae just fit together. There is nobody I'd rather see in concert. His guitar sound has more to do with Jackson Browne's success than anyone will admit.
I just love Mr Lindley he has also played music with Gabby Pahinui a legend in his own, any man who can ride with da hawaiians, is in peace and harmony with himself happy life mr lindley
