Front row for Saturday's Duke Robillard show here. If you get a chance, check out some of his videos. He's a great lead player, singer, songwriter of course, but the biggest thing I took away was his wonderful comping style when it was the piano's turn to solo. So Freddie Greene, simple, solid, right in the pocket every time. I've gotta work harder on this skill.
Youtube has a bunch of lessons from his DVD on there. Search for 'Duke Robilliard lesson' pulls em up. He's a fantastic player, and very unique in his style. Gives some good info on different chord shapes from the norm and rhythm patterns. I must sit down and watch more of them myself.
Here he is with my friend hahaha
