"Art that endures has always been concerned with expressing a deeper reality. Musicians and artists have the ability to look at a complex picture of reality and reduce it to the essential elements; only what is important and what is needed to convey essential information. When they accomplish this, their work tends to speak to all of humanity, across time and other more mundane boundaries."
"I create from these ideals, building upon enduring traditions and musical systems. Through my work, I hope to remind, illuminate and re-enforce a life sustaining human culture."
I thought folks might enjoy this vintage piece of video with Robben Ford and the Blue Line from an Italian television show we did back in the mid 1990's. Robben, guitar, Tom Brechtlein, drums and Roscoe Beck, bass.
