By: Robben Ford
Robben Ford has rightly earned the deep respect of his peers through his deft, lyrical phrasing and incredible tone. "Truth" is a fine collection of mature and elegant jazz tinged blues, in the grand tradition of B.B. King, to whom Ford pays tribute in "Riley B. King". Mr. Ford's playing is deceptively complex. As a vocalist, Ford is less exciting but quite competent. His tunes, although rarely magical, are always good.
