New Robben Ford Trio DVD

There is a new DVD from the Robben Ford Trio.

The new TRIO dvd.
Robben is of course singing and playing guitar. Travis Carlton on bass and Toss Panos on drums. This is a great trio we all got to hear on his incredible live-CD Soul on Ten. Did he get a Grammy for that? You get to see 13 songs. Kicking of with 'The way you treated me' we get see a super trio that seems to get better and better. Robben plays his new guitar by Taku Sakashta (link below) his Fender Telecaster and the Gibson LesPaul gold top which he borrowed from Larry Carlton.  Toss and Travis both have a great ear. They are constantly watching and listening and follow Robben closely. No auto-pilot here.

There are two bonus tracks featuring Larry Coryell. I've never liked Larry's playing and watched it once and really don't understand why it was included as a bonus. Perhaps Robben was being nice to the man that showed him the diminished scale. At least that's what Robben tells us in one of the other videos.
