Great news!

Is that an Epiphone with mini-hums?

I had the great privilege of listening to the record with the man himself down at TrueFire a few months ago. It is awesome and something different. Can't give out anymore details! I love my job!

Such a tease Jeff! :)

I'm hoping for a jazz influenced record from Robben.

Acc to Vintage Guitar Robben used the neck pickup on that guitar throughout the whole album. No info on amps though

Extra info found on vintage guitar.com:

"Robben Ford’s new album, Bringing It Back Home, is set for release February 19 and will include songs from early Delta pioneer Charley Patton (“Bird’s Nest Bound”), Bob Dylan (“Most Likely You Go Your Way (and I’ll Go Mine),” Allen Toussaint’s “Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky,” Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue,” and the obscure Willie West track “Fair Child.”

“[This] is the album I really wanted to make right now,” said Ford, who was once a sideman for Davis and Joni Mitchell. “My concept was to put great players together with songs that have deep roots and rich emotional terrain, and to just let something beautiful happen. The results are really pure, and the most fun I’ve had making an album in years.”

“Kind of Blue” is a study in how “space” on a recording can establish emotional timbre. “What I love best about blues and jazz is how great players — like Miles Davis or Jim Hall or Paul Desmond — allow a lot of space in their music,” he added. “ That’s where the beauty happens.”

Ford is accompanied on the album by Larry Goldings (organ), Harvey Mason (drums), David Piltch (bass) and Steve Baxter (trombone). To give every track a unifying sound, he used only the rhythm pickup on his ’63 Epiphone Riviera. Learn more at robbenford.com."

^ Sounds great! By Kind of Blue I assume they mean 'Blue In Green'? 'All Blues', perhaps? (probably a better 'fit' for Ford but I'd love to hear him do something interesting with the former)

Yeah, I'm looking forward to this. Hope he does either So What or All Blues.

Ok now that the info on who is on the recording is out I can talk about it. Robben wanted to keep it quite for a bit. He played me ruffs of the recording with scratch vocals. It's a cool record because of the instrumentation. He said he only used the Epiphone on it and a old small combo amp (sorry I don't remember!). He was really proud of the record. I loved how organic it sounded, just a bunch of guys playing. Really nice. Looking forward to hearing it again.

Interesting... David Piltch did great work with Holly Cole who's a jazz/pop singer here in Canada... example:

Robben in an interview about:
1st guitar
Robben and Budda
Robben and his parents
Teaching and extra income.
Choosing an instrument. Robben kind of stumbles upon the instruments he uses. Moving towards vintage guitars.
Bringing it back home. Epiphone Rivera is the only guitar used on the new record.
Joni Mitchell & the L.A. Express.
George Harrison

Goog question. I posted them a few months ago. Future project? Demosongs for other artists?
