Bruce Springsteen shows us who's Boss in this intimate live concert performance, a companion piece to his album 'Western Stars'.
Performed live, with a 30-piece orchestra and a small private audience tucked into his 100-year-old barn in New Jersey, the songs are introduced via Springsteen’s ruminations on solitude and community. Where many recording artists of a certain age might be considering a Vegas residency or a duets album, Bruce Springsteen continues to test himself creatively and artistically.
The film is a gorgeous tone poem that both deepens and personalizes the audio recording, creating a satisfying emotional arc that isn’t as apparent in the collection of 13 fully-orchestrated country-tinged songs released in June. ‘Western Stars’ is an intimate, wonderful gift.
