O’s Notes: Rhode Island may be a small state but there has been a wealth of great jazz musicians coming from there. Among them is the leader of this set, guitarist/vocalist Duke Robillard. Scott Hamilton (ts) and transplant Doug James (bs, ts) are also Rhode Islanders on this album, a collection of solid jazzy blues. Duke strums, sings and swings his way through ten solid tunes. Among the best are “Just Because” and “Red Dog”.
