Duke Robillard-The Acoustic Blues & Roots of Duke Robillard

“The Acoustic Blues & Roots Of Duke Robillard presents Robillard’s love of vintage blues, jazz and swing, with a selection of vocal and instrumental cuts. This is his very first acoustic album in a career that spans over five decades. Robillard has worked with Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Roomful Of Blues, Fabulous Thunderbirds and dozens of blues legends. He has been nominated for two Grammy Awards and has won “Blues Guitarist Of The Year” four times. Special guests include Maria Muldaur, Jay McShann and Mary Flower.” Yep, that’s what the P.R. people say about this incredible CD release and they are not off base. For those who seek the real homespun blues, filled with classic acoustic style guitar, playful keyboards, soulful vocals and spot on harmonies, this CD release will bring back the blues purist in any of us.
There is a true joy in Duke Robillard’s playing and singing, a backwater patio party that invites anyone nearby to come and join the fun. The 18 tunes work from one to the other, beautifully sequenced and true to their roots. Do not let this one get overlooked. You’ll be happy to have found it. I was.
