One week ago I was, like often, on the market with my girl friend. At the center there is some green space that you can't see easily from the outer ring where the business happens. At a moment I heard faintly some nice sounding guitar music. It seemed pretty nice so I decided to investigate … and there was this guy sitting on an amp below a tree with his acoustic guitar … with only a handful of spectators. He played some funky stuff that I liked – also the sound was very good.
Then he started to sing and I was surprised – it was pretty good! It's not unusual that musicians play at the "Boxhagender Platz", that's how this place is named. Sometimes the music is good, sometimes not. This time I liked it that much that I bought the CD after having heard only few songs. Later, we listened to the CD at home and even went to his concert the same night. 😉
His music is a nice mix of blues, jazz, soul, funk and certainly plenty of other influences. If you go to Rob's MySpace Site I recommend to listen first to"It's Jazz Baby", and then to "Number Through …". Other great songs of him are on the CD.
It's great to discover good music and musicians this way!!
It is said, that people don't buy CDs anymore … well when I see musicians play music that I like, I buy their CDs!! (And all of them have been DRM-Free so far!)
