Back Home album by Robben Ford is scheduled to be released Feb 19, 2013 on the MRI label. Bringing It Back Home CD music contains a single disc.
The following ‘Travellers Waltz’ is everything it two predecessors are not, being a beautiful example of cool restraint, all brushed strokes, confident vocals and delicate notes.
But perhaps I’m missing the point, as the playing is marvellous throughout, with a palpable sense of sophisticated cool as evidenced by the album’s anchor track ‘On That Morning’. The latter has a laid back groove that lies at the core of the album, while Robben’s reading of Sam Cooke’s ‘Fools Paradise’ achieves his aim of making an emotional connection with a requisite musical depth.
‘Bringing It Back Home’ restates Robben’s pivotal standing as a ‘guitar player’s guitar player’. The album has real presence and the guitarist speaks with his rich tone, effortless technique, and plays with real poise, taste and emotion, everything his fans would expect.
