Sherman Robertson – Takin’ You To Texas – JSP5808
Soul Bag – France March 2016
The DVD SHERMAN ROBERTSON – Takin You To Texas is part of the JSP/Blues Archive series devoted to recordings of concerts by bluesmen in England in the 1990’s. Already released are U.P Wilson, Larry Garner and Lonnie Shields. Louisiana born Sherman Robertson whose solo career was launched by English producer Mike Vernon on the new Code Blue label, represented the new generation of blues guitarists with a style and attack reminiscent of Freddie King. His talent as an artist and showman are clearly shown here as his high quality guitar playing and singing.
Three quarters of an hour of performance followed by a half hour of interviews makes an interesting package and makes it well worth watching for both devoted fans and those looking for an introduction to the blues.
