Robben Ford

Robben Ford has had a diverse career. He taught himself guitar when he was 13 and considered his first influence to be Mike Bloomfield. At 18 he moved to San Francisco to form the Charles Ford Band (named after his father, who was also a guitarist), and was soon hired to play with Charlie Musselwhite for nine months. In 1971, the Charles Ford Blues Band was re-formed and recorded for Arhoolie in early 1972. Ford played with Jimmy Witherspoon (1972-1973), the L.A. Express with Tom Scott (1974), George Harrison, and Joni Mitchell. In 1977 he was a founding member of the Yellowjackets, which he stayed with until 1983, simultaneously having a solo career and working as a session guitarist. In 1986, Ford toured with Miles Davis and had two separate periods (1985 and 1987) with Sadao Watanabe, but he really seemed to find himself in 1992 when he returned to his roots: the blues. Ford formed a new group, the Blue Line, and subsequently recorded a couple of blues-rock dates for Stretch that are among the finest of his career. In 1999, he released Sunrise on Rhino and Supernatural on Blue Thumb. Ford signed to the Concord Jazz label in 2002 and released Blue Moon that same year, followed by Keep on Running in 2003 and Truth in 2007. That same year, he was a billed special guest on Larry Carlton's Live in Tokyo. He followed this with the predominantly live Soul on Ten in 2009. In 2013, Ford began his label association with Provogue, and issued the studio album Bringing It Back Home, comprised mostly of blues and R&B covers played by an all-star band. Later that year, he recorded an album with a crack band in a single day at Nashville's Sound Kitchen Studio. The end result, titled A Day in Nashville, was issued in February of 2014. A year later, Ford returned with Into the Sun, a bright soulful album produced by Niko Bolas and featuring guest spots by ZZ Ward, Keb' Mo', and Warren Haynes. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Rob did an incredible show with Phil Lesh & Friends - Bill Payne & Paul Barrere of LI'l Feat were on stage too, with Ford filling in many of Jerry's chops - what fun! I can't recall if Dylan's cowboy band opened for Lesh&Friends or the other way around. I first noticed Ford on Tom Scott's LA Express album (with the belt buckle on the cover) in the 60's or early 70's. Look it up. At the time it was THE exquisite late night date album.

Plays an 63 Epiphone, uses a stand up bassist and a Trombone player. And it was HOT!!! Better live @ Yoshi's than new album cut.

Saw the Yellowjacket s early 80's at a museum in La Jolla, CA of all places. Wonderful show. I love the way he so masterfully expresses the soul of each song he plays. Many players seem to want to overpower whatever they are playing. Not Robben.

Gotta love a Les Paul blues player with this sort of tone! Who needs a Strat?

Robben Ford is my top blues/rock guitarist. He has great taste in his phrasing. Doesn't fill up every space in the music like Bonamassa, even though he has the chops to do so if he wanted. Very musical, indeed

I love the effortless 'oneness' he has with the song. A confidence that makes us listeners sit back and enjoy the trip!

like Albert Collins, his guitar sounds have a horn-like quality; unique and captivating. Love the Ford Brothers gigs at the Sierra Nevada Brewery Big Room!

It's the interaction with the percussion. I had a thumbs up on it five seconds after it started playing. A real feel-good tune.

Seen Robben a couple of times now.. both were unbelievable ! Though I have to say the best treat was with Gregg Allman and Friends, which included Willie Weeks (bass) Nils Larsen (keys). Gregg, if you're out there, please take that show on the road again!
