Critical Acclaim for Cool on the Bloom:
Best Acoustic Album nominee: 2017 Blues Blast Music Awards
“Much of the Blues press places Robb at the top of the heap of acoustic and electric pickers globally... Cool On The Bloom is a collection of Mr. Robb’s latest acoustic fretwork sensibility. He plucks with a broad stroke, finely tuned, combining elements of Ragtime, Delta Boogie, Piedmont style Blues, slick jazz arpeggios and scales with a subtle hint of Segovia sensibility. Out of the gate Cool on the Bloom is a force to be reckoned with. He comes right at the listener with track 1, “Soc Hop.” His fingers fly fancifully. Like Lightnin’ Hopkins on speed dial.” – Tee Watts, Blues Blast Magazine, Issue 11-27, July 2017
"Unquestionably, Robb ranks right up there with the heavy hitters, a player of dazzling skill and technique. He could go to any guitar festival and show them a few chords. Cool on the Bloom packs all that." - Frank Matheis, Living Blues Magazine, Issue 246, Jan 2017
"No better way to start than with “Soc Hop,” a nifty-fingered jazz-country tune that show he’s master of what he does...this man’s articulate playing is perfect." - Pete Innes, Blues Matters, Issue 94, Feb 2017
