Robin Trower: Roots And Branches new CD

Robin Trower: Roots And Branches

Robin Trower, one of the most justly-acclaimed of British Rock music s elder statesmen, will release his latest album entitled Roots & Branches on February 4th 2013 On the new album Roots & Branches, Robin has produced unique cover versions of some classic Blues and R N B tracks such as Hound Dog, The Thrill Has Gone & Little Red Rooster. Of the new album Robin says I started off thinking I would do a complete album of covers, I wanted to get as far away from the originals as possible. I came up with half a dozen arrangements, which felt different enough, so I ended up writing some new songs as well. I have tried to make the new songs be influenced by what I have done with the classics, so the album blends together The unassuming Robin Trower has, over the forty-odd years since his departure from Procol Harum, assembled an incredible body of work, from his commercial high water mark with the epochal Bridge of Sighs album in 1974, through to the brand new Roots & Branches. His music has never attempted to make concessions to commercial demands, and his improvisational skills have consistently re-set the bar in terms of blues-soaked inspiration and intensity. Never abashed about crediting the late Jimi Hendrix as one of his main influences, Trower remains one of the most talented musicians that the UK has ever produced.
