O’s Notes: Duke Robillard serves up a dose of rocking, gritty blues. He is playing his guitar and singing in front of a solid band including Doug James (sax, harp), Bruce Bears (keyboards), Brad Hallen (b) and Mark Teixeira (d). They get down to business on “Working Hard For My Uncle” followed by the swinging New Orleans style of “Hong Kong Suit”. That gutsy blues style prevails over a baker’s dozen tracks written all or in part by Duke. He is on his game and if you prefer the grungy blues, this is your ticket!
