Robben Ford Trio - Freedom

Robben Ford (born December 16, 1951)[1] is an American blues, jazz and rock guitarist. He was a member of the L.A. Express and has collaborated with Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, George Harrison, Larry Carlton and KISS. He was named one of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century" by Musician magazine.


Robben Ford uses Dumble Amplifiers and Celestion G12-65 speakers. When traveling abroad he uses Fender Super Reverb amplifiers along with a Zendrive overdrive pedal by Hermida Audio. Sometimes he plays a vintage 1960 Fender Telecaster, Gibson Les Pauls or a guitar custom-made by Taku Sakashta.[8] Currently, Ford travels with just two vintage guitars: a 1966 Epiphone Riviera (with the original Bigsby trem removed and replaced with a stop tailpiece) and the 1960 Fender Telecaster.[9]
Personal life

Ford is married to the cabaret singer Anne Kerry Ford. He is the uncle of current Little Feat drummer Gabe Ford.[10]

Robben Ford Trio - Spoonful

It could be a spoonful of diamond,
It could be a spoonful of gold,
Just a little spoon of your precious love,
Satisfy my soul.

Men lies about little,
Some of them cries about little,
Some of them dies about littles,
Everything fight about a spoonful,
Dat spoon, dat spoon, dat ...

It could be a spoonful of coffee,
Could be a spoonful of tea,
But a little spoon of your precious love,
Good enough for me.

Men lies about that,
Some of them dies about that,
Some of them cries about that,
But everything fight about a spoonful.

That spoon, dat spoon, dat ...

It could be a spoonful of water,
Saved from the deserts sand,
But one spoon of them fortifies.
Save you from another man.

Men lies about that,
Some of them cries about that,
Some of them dies about that,
Everybody fightin' about a spoonful.

That spoon, dat spoon, dat ...

Robben's site:

Robben Ford (nacido el 16 de diciembre de 1951) es un guitarrista de blues, jazz y rock.

Nació en Woodlake, California, y creció en Ukiah. Comenzó a tomar clases de guitarra a los 13 años, en 1965, y compró su primera guitarra con 19 años, en 1969. Charles Ford, su padre, tenía su propia banda de blues, Charles Ford Blues Band, en la que figuraban como músicos Robben y sus hermanos.

La fama mundial como guitarrista le llegó en 1986, año en el que figuró como guitarrista en el staff de la gira de Miles Davis, por fusionar de manera genial jazz y blues de un modo innovador. Robben Ford también ha tocado en directo y colaborado en álbumes con Jimmy Witherspoon, George Harrison, Joni Mitchell con Tom Scott's L.A. Express, y los Yellowjackets.

Ford compuso su primer álbum en solitario en 1972, titulado Discovering the Blues. A este último le sucedieron Schizophonic (1976) y su mejor álbum, The Inside Story (1979), que fue disco de oro en 1980.

Tras un periodo de cuatro años sin ningún nuevo release, en 1983 editó Words and Music, al que siguió su álbum homónimo, Robben Ford, en 1986.

En al año 1988 grabó Talk to Your Daughter, que también fue disco de oro en 1989. Su mejor trabajo de los noventa incluye los discos Handful of Blues, Blues Connotation y Tiger Walk, que constituyen un regreso a sus raíces bluseras.

Robben Ford usa amplificadores Dumble, y tiene su propio modelo signature de Fender.

Está casado con la cantante de cabaret Anne Kerry Ford, que además ha colaborado con él en varios proyectos.
