Robben Ford Trio: Live in Paris, 2009
Catalogue Number: INAK6477-1DVD
For Robben Ford's thousands of enthusiastic Paris fans, this New Morning concert in July 2009 captures their icon's genius in a truly unprecedented manner. Backed brilliantly by Athens-born Toss Panos - a musicologist and student of African percussion who brings Mediterranean flavour to the trio - and by L.A. bassist Travis Carlton, Robben's unique style (a tasteful blend of strength and finesse) asserts itself impressively above and beyond his rock, jazz, fusion and blues influences. "What music is really about is what happens when it's played in front of people. That's when you really understand it. That's what I wanted to capture."
