Artist: Duke Robillard Album: A Swingin Session with Duke Robillard Genre: Blues, Jazz Label: Stony Plain Released: 2008 Quality: FLAC (image+. cue) Tracklist: Deed I Do 3'56. The Lonesome Road 6'42. Duke Robillard - electric and/or acoustic archtop guitar and vocals all tracks. Bruce Katz - piano/organ all tracks. Duke Robillard has always had one foot in the blues world and one in the swing/jazz universe. He loves both styles of music and enjoys not only playing them separately but combining them together. The founder of Roomful of Blues back in 1967, Robillard has led dozens of projects throughout his career, including collaborations with guitarist Herb Ellis, Jimmy Witherspoon, and Jay McShann.
Duke Robillard is the founder of Roomful of Blues, has played with Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Big Joe Turner, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bob Dylan. Herb Ellis, the elder half of this duo, has played with everyone from Louis Armstrong to Oscar Peterson, from Billie Holiday to Ella Fitzgerald. Though Robillard is more versed in the blues, he can swing, with the best of them, as the opener, "Moten Swing," attests. The guitarists are featured on separate stereo channels, which gives the listener (especially on headphones) the opportunity to hear the contrast in "conversational" styles-Robillard's fuller and more blues tinges; Ellis's tangy and looser, swinging just a bit freer than his younger counterpart
Duke Robillard has always had one foot in the blues world and one in the swing/jazz universe. While six horn players participate, there are no more than four on any one selection,.
