    On a recording from Infinity Hall that was on my PVR.

    What a wonderfully tasteful player. He plays some great lines. I've never really been a fan of his vocals but this show is pretty good. Cool to see him with an SG too.

    This was a cool show. I have it saved down too.

    I'm hoping we'll hear some more jazz influenced Robben in the future, but it would seem he's moving further towards the songwriting thing (as evidenced in Infinity Hall show and his last record) as he's moving to Nashville etc....

    I think that you'll like this. Not straight ahead jazz but good stuff.

    Check out Jing Chi. Robben's best stuff in my opinion.

    Yep! Got that record and love it. The tune Tom Cat from that record gets a frequently blasting at home. Also love the one before it with Larry Carlton.

    Also love the Jing Chi stuff as well. This stuff (LA Express, Jing Chi, the Yellowjackets stuff) is exactly what I'm referring to. Robben just burns it up playing that stuff but hasn't played much of it in recent times. I think it would be great if he was to revisit that style.

    I too wish he would do more in a jazz(y) setting. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to inspire him any more.

    I saw him some years back with the Miles Davis alumni band Miles Smiles, and Robben can still do it when he want to

    I had totally forgotten about Tom Scott. I always thought Larry Carlton was on gtr with the L.A. Express, live and learn.

    You were right. The original version of the L.A. Express had Larry Carlton on guitar. When Larry Carlton left the band in 1974 Robben Ford replaced him.
