Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2009-06-23It is said that everything old is new again and Duke Robilard is bring back the Rockin R&B sounds of the 40’s and 50’s with vengeance. Joined by roomful of blues alumni Doug James, Rich Latiaille and Carl Querfurth on horns this could have been released as the finest Roomful CD in years. Sharing vocals with the terrific Sunny Crownover Duke plays homage to some of the finest vocalists of the era including Wynoie Harris, Roy Milton, Big Joe Turner and Helen Humes’ who originally recorded the “Million Dollar Secret”. Most of the tracks on this disc were originally recorded 40-60 years ago, but Duke brings them back to life and makes them sound as fresh as the day they were recoded. My advice is put on your dancing shoes and Stomp the Blues Tonight! Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
