The previous night we had turned up at the Iridium, intending to see Duke Robillard and saw the Les Paul Trio instead. This night we saw Duke Robillard (music on MySpace).
Les Paul was also watching on from the wall.
Duke Robillard is a Blues musician who also plays Jazz. Most of his CDs are Blues but some are entirely Jazz.
He cofounded the band Roomful of Blues in 1967, which still continues to this day and left it in 1980.
From 1990 to 1993 he played with The Fabulous Thunderbirds but after leaving Roomful of Blues has generally played in his own bands.
It was another great night of Blues with a small audience in an intimate setting.
