Wrecking Ball: the musicians

German store JPC has revealed a list of musicians that participate in nearly all the songs off Wrecking BallAnd it’s a long list.

Some of them are part of the Victorious Gospel Choir of Asbury Park, a gospel group led by Lilly Brown. They performed with Springsteen at the  Christmas concerts in 2001 and 2003.

Although incomplete (it’s missing credits on 5 songs) the list confirms the participation of Tom Morello (guitar) in at least 2 songs, Matt Chamberlain (drums), Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar), Stan Harrison (Asbury Jukes’ sax player) or several members of the Seeger Sessions Band (Curt Ramm -trumpet-, Clark Gayton -trombone-, Art Baron -tuba-, Ed Manion -sax-, Lisa Lowell -vocals-).

From the legendary E Street Band we find Steve Van Zandt, Soozie Tyrell, Patti Scialfa, Max Weinberg, Charlie Giordano and Clarence Clemons, who plays sax on»Wrecking Ball» (he might be featured in more songs, like «Land of Hope and Dreams», but it is not know yet). So far no information on Roy, Nils and Garry, although they could be in any of the other 5 songs that remain uncredited in the list below.

The other musicians are less known, although some had previously recorded with Springsteen. Michelle Moore, Antoinette Savage, Corinda Carford and Tiffany Andrews are part of the vocal group The Alliance Singers (who sing background vocals on «Let’s Be Friends» and «Mary’s Place» from the album The Rising). Jeremy McCoy, Dan Shelly and Mark Romatz are all part of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in New York City.
