Robben Ford

Robben Ford - City Life - 2006 - West Wind

Strictly speaking, this is not a true Robben Ford studio album. The tracks are a mix of traditional and improvisational jazz recorded in 1988 and 1992 in Seattle's London Bridge Studios. The material includes music originally recorded by artists like Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Johnny Hodges, Ornette Coleman, Charlie Parker, and others. Although Robben plays on all tracks, Bill Frisell plays guitar on five tracks. Charlie Haden plays bass on two tracks, and Anthony Cox plays bass on three tracks. Other musicians include Jerry Granelli on drums and Kenny Garrett on alto sax. The album is really a group effort. Tracks 4-8 are already available on Jerry Granelli's "A Song I Thought I Heard Buddy Sing" album. Also, this album was released in 1988 by Robben Ford under the title, "Blues Connotation". This is not a new Robben Ford release and is definitely not blues based. Having said that, the musicianship on this album is excellent and taken by itself a very good album, but don't be ripped off into buying this album if you already have the other two albums mentioned [All tracks @ 320 Kbps: File size = 127 Mb]
