Terry Robb - Resting Place (CD)
Release Date: 07/07/06
Guitar virtuoso Terry Robb - 16 time winner of the Cascade Blues Association's Muddy Award - is one of the most heralded players of the flourishing Pacific Northwest blues scene. Resting Place, his debut album with Yellow Dog Records, features well-chosen covers that compliment Robb's originals, echoing a broad swath of roots legends such as Merle Travis, Joe Callicott, Reverend Gary Davis, Lightning Hopkins, and John Fahey. Robb traveled to Memphis for a dream recording session with engineer Roland Janes (Jerry Lee Lewis) - linchpin of hundreds of Sun Records and Sam Phillips recording sessions. Anchoring the date were some of Memphis' finest: drummer Willie Hall (Isaac Hayes, The Blues Brothers, The Bo-Keys), bassist Paul Taylor (North Mississippi Allstars), and keyboard man Charlie Wood (B.B. King, The Bo-Keys). Combined with solo tracks showcasing Robb's phenomenal fingerpicking, the resulting album is a tour-de-force of acoustic blues guitar.
