On Today’s Playlist: Truth by Robben Ford

Robben Ford has been on my list of all time favourites since I was first introduced to his music from 1988’s Talk to Your Daughter album. I was catching up on his latest YouTube Live Stream from past Sunday and he talked about the Truth album and how he has proud of it.

If you’ve never heard Robben Ford, firstly, shame on you (!), but secondly, just give this one a listen and all will be forgiven 🙂 !!

On Today’s Playlist: Live In Cook County Jail by B.B. King

Been on a serious blues streak for a while now, rekindling my early love for the sweet sounds of a “crying” electric guitar that first drew me to pick up the instrument many many moons ago.

Live In Cook County Jail I consider to be one of BB’s finest, even though it doesn’t get as much attention as some other live recordings he has done.

From a guitar playing perspective, I find BB one of the hardest players to “copy” – as in, it’s deceptively difficult to transcribe his solos note for note. There is so much subtlety and nuance to his playing, not to mention his impeccable touch and unique feel and phrasing. Still The King after all these years!

Give it spin!
