    <p><strong>Twenty-five years ago, Richard Barone created a masterpiece his first time at bat as a solo artist. Following the amicable breakup of the acclaimed indie-pop band The Bongos, the singer-songwriter and guitarist decided to put a new spin on the accepted rock rhythm section paradigm, replacing bass and drums with cello and percussion, for a live album he recorded during a single evening at the legendary Bottom Line nightclub in New York City.</strong></p><p>The result was Cool Blue Halo, a work of uncommon beauty and unflinching intimacy that was a harbinger of things to come: in just a few short years, the practice of performing "unplugged" would become something of a litmus test for many of the world's top acts.</p><p>Barone claims he wasn't trying to start a revolution, but he was going for, as he puts it, "music <br>that itself had a feeling of timelessness. I was finally settling into my home in the West Village, and began rediscovering music that had always inspired me the ambient music of Brian Eno, the acoustic troubadour sounds of Donovan, early albums by T. Rex and David Bowie, and The Beatlesʼ 'White Album.' And I was also discovering for the first time jazz trio and quartet albums from the mid-'50s, electronic music, classical chamber quartets and other music not always driven by guitar-bass-drums."</p><p>To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Cool Blue Halo, Barone assembled the album's original players (Nick Celeste, guitar; Valerie Nartanjo, percussion; and Jane Scarpantoni, cello), along with guests such as producer Tony Visconti and The Band's Garth Hudson, among others, for a one-night rereading of the classic disc at New York's City Winery. The group rehearsed at Barone's home away from home, the Gibson Guitar Showroom in the Big Apple, which is where we hooked up with him recently for a video look (see above) at some of his favorite Gibson models.</p><p>Cool Blue Halo is now available in a <a href="">25th anniversary box set</a> that includes the digitally remastered original album, along with demos and nine new bonus tracks, a DVD of the City Winery show and more goodies. </p> <a href="">Read more about VIDEO: Richard Barone on his favorite Gibson guitars at</a><img width='1' height='1' src='' border='0'/><div class='mf-viral'><table border='0'><tr><td valign='middle'><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /></a></td><td valign='middle'><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" /></a></td></tr></table></div><br/><br/><a href=""><img src="" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="" border="0"/><img src="" height="1" width="1"/>
