"The hottest blues band I've ever heard…" - Count Basie
It's for good reason that Roomful of Blues has been declared: "America's Best Little Big Band." For over 25 years, the seven-piece tour de force has delivered its house rockin'/roof raisin' brand of jump and swing blues to every corner of the country. Finishing No. 2 in Down Beat's "Reader's Poll" as "Blues Band of the Year" in 2002, their popularity continues to surge as they quickly approach national treasure status. On The First Album, co-produced by Joel Dorn and the legendary Doc Pomus, Roomful features an exquisite, gloriously swinging line-up including guitarist Duke Robillard, pianist Al Copley and tenor saxophonist Greg Piccolo. From the opening bounce of "Red, Hot & Blue" to the sweaty blues grind of "Texas Flood" to the closing rave-up "Honey Hush," Roomful of Blues are the utter definition of "jumpin' & swingin'." As Los Angeles Times critic Tony Lioce once declared: "This is what it sounded like on the ground floor of what became, and probably was even then, American's truly prime rib jump blues band!"
Roomful of Blues: Duke Robillard (guitar, vocal); Al Copley (piano); Preston Hubbard (bass fiddle); John Rossi (drums); Scott Hamilton (tenor sax); Richard Lataille (alto sax); Doug James (baritone sax); Greg Piccolo (tenor sax)
