Bruce Hornsby and his band The Noisemakers were on the Jimmy Kimmel Live studios on Wednesday as the late-night show’s featured musical guest. For their appearance on the popular talk show, Bruce Hornsby & The Noisemakers treated fans in attendance and viewers watching at home to a performance of “Cast-Off”, one of the tunes featured on the pianist’s latest studio album, Absolute Zero.
The band’s performance of the calming ballad opened up beautifully with Hornsby on his baby grand piano while accompanied by his small string section. The song quickly takes off but never gets too far ahead of itself as each of the six members allows the music to glide along with melodic ease and tranquility. Sadly, Hornsby wasn’t joined by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, who appears on the song’s studio version on the album, but the band seemed to manage without him. Fans can watch the entire performance from Wednesday’s episode below.

Absolute Zero arrived last month via Zappo Productions/Thirty Tigers, and featured a mix of guest collaborators and musicians including Vernon, yMusic, Robert Hunter, The Staves, Blake Mills, Jack DeJohnette, Sean Carey, and The Orchestra Of St. Hanks.
Hornsby and company had been in southern California this past weekend where they performed at the inaugural BeachLife Festival. The band will continue to perform their new material into the summer months with their 2019 tour set to start up again in mid-July with support from Amos Lee and S. Carey.
