„Pure” is Robben Ford’s brand-new instrumental studio album – the first one since “Tiger Walk” from 1997. With nine unique tracks the album features a “pure” Robben Ford – this guitar virtuoso who has a tremendous music vocabulary of jazz, blues and rock. “Pure” is to be congratulated as an album which seamlessly blends a soulful west coast vibe with bluesy hard rock. On top, “Pure” features exceptional guest musicians such as Nate Smith, Toss Panos, Shannon Forest and more.
His new Single „GO“ is the 2nd single from the new album and is available now worldwide on all digital platforms: https://robbenford.lnk.to/GoSingle
Here is a quote from Robben about „Pure“:
“Pure is unlike any recording I’ve ever done. I’ve always been a traditionalist in the way I’ve worked in the studio: bring a great band into a great room with a great engineer, track songs for three to five days, do any overdubbing necessary, then, mix and master.
I started “Pure” in that same way. But, somehow the influence of other musicians on the music, which is inevitable, always felt a little off. It became clear to me that I had to shape this new music myself from the ground up. My engineer and co-producer, Casey Wasner, proved invaluable in making that happen and most of the music you’ll hear in this recording was accomplished by the two of us working together in his studio, Purple House: getting the right shape and feel to the music, then adding bass and drums after the fact.
Having worked in this way, I feel that “Pure” is perhaps the most complete representation of my personal musical vision: previous recordings having been products of a period of development that lead to the music presented here. It’s been very satisfying to have shaped my own compositions so thoroughly and to deliver something so completely my own.”
