"In the space of a few minutes, Robinson makes a strong musical statement and is able to take his listeners on musical excursions that are sometimes somber, sometimes slightly whimsical, but always intriguing." San Diego Troubadour

Welcome to my new and improved website, still a work in progress but you know what that's like!

A couple of wonderful things coming--SONGS AND STORIES, where I'll share the stage with two talented singer/songwriters: Jesse Harris and Todd Clouser. Todd's an eclectic cat with a following around the world and Jesse is the composer of several of Norah Jones' big tracks including "Don't Know Why."

It's a comeback concert for me, as I fell in November and broke my shoulder and wrist. Surgery and physical therapy have gotten me on the path to full recovery, though it's going to take a while.

For those that don't know, in June of 2016 I lost one of my best fiends and Mexico lost it's finest jazz guitarist: Ken Basman passed away. Ken and I had been working on a duo CD featuring our telepathic improvised duets and even though we hadn't completed it, we had several great tracks done. I scoured my archives of our live gigs and found some wonderful--if sonically unpolished--examples of us at our best. The CD is called DUOTUNES and it's for sale at cdbaby.com and it's splendid. Many thanks to JAZZIZ Magazine for recognizing how special it is and featuring it on their 'summer jazz discoveries' sampler CD.

 

And I'm very happy to announce that in the April issue to San Diego Troubadour, there is a rave review of the DUOTUNES CD. Check it out--I couldn't be prouder. https://sandiegotroubadour.com/2018/04/doug-robinson-ken-basman-duotunes/

Check out the 'Shows' link for cool photos from a great concert with Don Grusin and Iraida Noriega to benefit Patronato Pro Niños.

I'm featuring a different album in it's entirety every couple of months--check it out and download the tracks if you want to add to your collection! 

There is also music from unreleased projects and hand-selected video clips. Take a few moments and look around and please tell me what you think.

Thanks,

Doug
