    Earlier, we heard Bill Jennings do "Glide On." That's a great record. Here's a take on the tune by Duke Robillard with his jazz trio. More laid back than Bill's version, but tasty playing throughout.

    Yeah, Duke can play. He had a shoulder problem last year / early this year and had to do some gigs where he just sang while a young guy whose name escapes me (Mike something) handled the hot guitar parts.

    Duke did an acoustic blues record that won him an award. It's good stuff. He's still very active and has something coming out soon. Still teaches at Sonic Junction. (While his arm was messed up---I'm not sure what the problem was---other guys posted lessons while Duke made some off-camera comments. He's been around a long time and excels at every kinda blues I know of. He once said he thought of himself as a "swinging blues" player. He really loves that stuff.

    Here's a swinging blues of Duke's

    Might not be exactly "jump" but I love these guys. And for what it's worth, their guitarist, James Achor, often plays a blond Gibson L4ces, other times something that looks like an L5ces.

    Just found this on Facebook. Three Bill Doggett cuts featuring two guitarists who cut some killer sides with him: Billy Butler and Bill Jennings.

    Jim Hall said in an interview that this tune with CC and Benny Goodman was the one that got him into playing guitar.

    That's actually me on guitar. James Achor left the band around 2000 and I've been playing with them since 2002. The guitar in that clip is a Super V. James played a 175 I believe.

    Just found this (-it's not new): a 17-minute interview / lesson by Duke Robillard.

    He talks about Bill Jennings and Billy Butler being his biggest influences.




    Note: the sound isn't great, but there are some choice nuggets in what Duke says / plays.

    Yeah, he does. I prefer his swingin' blues to his Chicago / down home blues stuff. (He does the latter well too but I've lost interest in playing it, so I don't listen to much of it.)

    I wonder if he and Mickey Baker ever met.....
