Robby Krieger knows that when you assemble the right bunch of musicians, and trust in the creative process, magic happens. As a founding member of The Doors, the guitarist intuitively understands the beauty of free-flowing collaboration and telepathic group interplay. This is evident on Robby’s self-titled debut release from his new band, Robby Krieger And The Soul Savages, out January 19th through The Players Club / Mascot Label Group.
Robby Krieger And The Soul Savages was recorded old school style with a bunch of Robby’s friends who also happen to be world-class composers and instrumentalists jamming and recording in a relaxed studio setting. Fans of the guitarist’s singular style will rejoice that his latest album is filled with Robby-isms. It brims with his celebrated fingerstyle fretwork, including Robby’s adventurous jazzy and microtonal slide guitar playing; his funky rhythm work; and his silky Wes Montgomery-style octave playing. The 10-song album explores the soul-jazz, dirty blues, and noir-ish roots of The Doors while also furthering Robby’s career as a jazz-fusion guitarist.
