Edie Brickell is not resting on her laurels

She might be married to one of folkdom’s most brilliant songwriters, Paul Simon. But that doesn’t mean Edie Brickell has put her own career on hold. In fact, the missus wisely spent most of the time on her 2003 tour (backing her “Volcano” solo set) — she was cranking out material for two new records.

 The first, “Edie Brickell,” was produced by Texas guitar god Charlie Sexton, and arrives Jan. 11. To premiere it, she’ll be performing a one-off concert in her native New York on Jan. 29, at Radio City Music Hall with Iron & Wine opening.

The second album is even more intriguing.

It’s the self-titled debut from The Gaddabouts, a little supergroup consisting of top-flight studio musicians Steve Gadd, Pino Palladino and Andy Fairweather-Low.

The album will feature not only older compositions, but impromptu tracks from the recording day itself. Gadd, of course, produced. And both efforts are available on Brickell’s own racecarLOTTA Records.
