Anyone who knows Duke's music, will immediately smile at the first few seconds of the opening track "Here I'm Is" from the new album They Call It Rhythm & Blues, available from Stony Plain Records on March 18, 2022. It's that joyous jump-blues shuffle sound that Duke has been perfecting since the late 60s. Indeed, every song on this generous 18-song album is about the groove, master musicianship, great understated taste and a perfect band mix that always complements the pulse and the singer. Duke's guitar is at the centre and brings it all together.

For a lifetime Duke Robillard has been playing the jazzy corners of the blues. He was a founder of Roomful of Blues in the early 1970s, and replaced Jimmy Vaughan in the Fabulous Thunderbirds in the 1990s and was a core member of the New Guitar Summit through the 2000s, in addition to releasing an astounding 37 albums on his own. He has won the W.C. Handy Award as Best Blues Guitarist twice, and been nominated for two Best Blues Album Grammy Awards. He is credited with taking the blues to a new level for multiple generations of blues guitarists.

Special guests include:
John Hammond
Kim Wilson
Sue Foley
Michelle Wilson
Sugar Ray Norcia

Press Quotes

Duke Robillard is the greatest Blues guitarist of all time...it is clear that Duke Robillard is undoubtedly a stronger more expressive guitarist than he was as a younger man. .. 'They Called It R&B is a survey of the music that was originally defined in the 50's and 60's as R&B...As an artist this seems to be the goal, continue to hone and refine your craft.. Duke has done this with grace, strength and dedication. We are all lucky he still has such a jones for producing music.

     —Bucky O’Hare, Blues Blast Magazine

They Called It Rhythm & Blues (Stony Plain) just might be the best collection of recordings that he's put out over the years...it is already in the running for this year's best blues album...

     —Bill Mitchell, Blues Bytes
