Robben Ford Plays Atlanta’s City Winery



Bob Bakert, Editor of Jazz Guitar Today: It was great to hear Robben Ford at the City Winery Atlanta – Friday, January 24.  

The band was on point with very deep grooves set up by the rhythm section of Brian Allen on bass and Wes Little on drums.  Robben is releasing a new EP this July with sax great Bill Evans but for this gig, top Nashville session player Doug Moffet was brought in on tenor and soprano.  They played a couple of tunes from that upcoming release and the unison lines with Robben and Doug were a highlight and a glimpse of what we can expect on the new release.

The house sound was very good and Robben played most of the night on his 1966 Epiphone Riviera through his Iconic Dumble (pictured above).  And I had a chance to take a close look at his pedal board (opening shot). The tone was classic, chunky with lots of blues/jazz vibe.  I loved it!
