NEW YORK (AP) — Robbie Robertson is in a purple patch of late.
He's got a new album called "Sinematic" and a new documentary about his time in The Band.
In addition to his own songs, he's written music for the upcoming Martin Scorsese film "The Irishman," is writing a second volume of his memoir "Testimony" and is celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Band's self-titled album with a new box set.
The Band fused rock, blues, folk and gospel to create an authentically American sound. They hewed their complex sound backing Bob Dylan when he first went electric.
Only two original members remain and one song on Roberts' new album pays tribute to his "lost brothers."
