Tad Robinson - vocalist

Most of the current crop of plugged-in blues purveyors draws from a relatively narrow range of the tradition: either the small combo sound of Chicago, or the guitar trio format popularized by Stevie Ray Vaughn. This is a function of economics as much as anything else; the horn-section-enhanced sound of T-Bone walker, B.B.

Thus it is all the more refreshing to hear Tad Robinson's brilliant take on this lushly arranged branch of the blues.
