#3 Sherman Robertson’s new album is called “Guitar Man Live” will please his fans and blues lovers in general. Performing a high-explosive brew of his Texas-style, guitar-driven blues with a shot of zydeco, soul-blues and a bit of funk, Sherman Robertson is the legitimate successor of the late great Albert Collins. His live set is made of all needed ingredients for a good night out and crowd loves every bit! Album was recorded at Kwadendamme Blues Festival in Holland last year and here Sherman is backed by his regular European band BluesMove from England. They do a great job and it’s obviously that this band is one of the best in their homeland. This album collects eight songs from the gig, featuring two original Sherman’s songs while the rest being road tested crowd pleasers like Robert Johnson’s “Dust My Broom”, Ray Sharpe’s “Linda Lou” and Curtis Jones’ classic “Tin Pan Alley”. Tracks are long and give plenty of space for musicians to stretch and show their expertise in blues. Sherman Robertson has an individual style of playing, though incorporating influences from his biggest influences. Not since the 80’s and the terrific comeback of Albert Collins and Robert Cray’s comet-like rise to stardom, the blues world has experienced anything comparable to Sherman Robertson. He plays the blues with passion and conviction. “Guitar Man Live” is in effect the continuation of an exciting recording career that matured under the watchful eye of Clifton Chenier and hit pay dirt with the million selling Paul Simon’s album “Graceland”.
