        What The Experts Are Saying About Robert Ross
        SELECTED REVIEW EXCERPTS


        "He's so fast, lightning would have to get on roller skates to catch him." Albert King, reported by Hank Reineke, East Coast Rocker    

        "HOT!!" Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, reported by Pablo Guzman, NY Daily News  

        "Robert Ross is a fine singer, a snappy lyricist, and an even better blues guitarist cut from the same cloth as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, or Johnny Winter. 69 Chevy ... The rain drenched pain of "White Boy Lost In The Blues" makes it a 'tour de Ross' all around and his dazzling guitar intro is one of the best I've ever heard. He saves some sizzle for the slide guitar roast "Sittin' In The Jail House". Move over George Thorogood and let Ross show you how to play that thing! Ross' guitar solos are a joy to hear, technically inventive, and packed with tortured feeling. Time after time Ross delivers the goods." Bill Carlton, NY Daily News

        "The bluesman wailed, his voice rough and pliant and booming  & most wonderful.”  Rafael Alvarez, Baltimore Sun

        "It's the classic mix: the old veteran, the gunslinger, the talent everyone knows (Bo Diddley), joining the new guy (Robert Ross), the one who's still trying to get his talent out there  & at the Bottom Line  & the show will be particularly intriguing because Ross is one of the most impressive young blues men around-more traditional, actually, than Bo himself. In fact Ross is on the show at Diddley's invitation, because the old master liked the young guy's stuff." David Hinckley, NY Daily News

        "Okay, pay attention: Robert Ross is the real thing & some of the hottest blues you're likely to hear anywhere  & perpetual groove  & vital and vibrant  & with a mark distinctly his own ... a true showman who turns in a creative and entertaining show. He and his band throw themselves head first into their sets, taking risks, challenging each other, pushing the edge and ultimately emerging from the melee triumphant  & Ross' original material is outstanding, filled with truth and humor and an individuality that shines. Imagination, speed, dexterity and flash are all words that have been used before to describe Robert's guitar playing, but  & he also displays fine sensitivity, a fact that can sometimes be overlooked in the face of his more spectacular guitar work. Beautiful, ringing tones  & expressive notes almost torn from his axe in his own 'White Boy Lost In The Blues'  & And you can hear it in the unique, rough edged tones of his fluid voice as well." Jennifer Shields, Musicians' Exchange

What The Experts Are Saying About Robert Ross

SELECTED REVIEW EXCERPTS


"Robert Ross is a blues icon. One of the great blues spirits." Bob Fass, Radio Un-Nameable, WBAI-FM, NYC, 2007

"He's so fast, lightning would have to get on roller skates to catch him." Albert King, reported by Hank Reineke, East Coast Rocker, 1988

"HOT!!" Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, reported by Pablo Guzman, NY Daily News, 1987

"Robert Ross is a fine singer, a snappy lyricist, and an even better blues guitarist cut from the same cloth as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, or Johnny Winter. 69 Chevy ... The rain drenched pain of "White Boy Lost In The Blues" makes it a 'tour de Ross' all around and his dazzling guitar intro is one of the best I've ever heard.

"The bluesman wailed, his voice rough and pliant and booming  & most wonderful.  Rafael Alvarez, Baltimore Sun, 1991

"It's the classic mix: the old veteran, the gunslinger, the talent everyone knows (Bo Diddley), joining the new guy (Robert Ross), the one who's still trying to get his talent out there  & at the Bottom Line  & the show will be particularly intriguing because Ross is one of the most impressive young blues men around-more traditional, actually, than Bo himself.

Beautiful, ringing tones  & expressive notes almost torn from his axe in his own 'White Boy Lost In The Blues'  & And you can hear it in the unique, rough edged tones of his fluid voice as well." Jennifer Shields, Musicians' Exchange, 1988

"Robert Ross is an imaginative writer with files of Twilight Zone tales accumulated in his wanderings ... soulful, vigorous guitar playing ... agile cat quick licks ... bristles with originals ... Ross scores big ... Ross sings in his fluid growl ... saucy slide ... If you're looking for fresh guitar passion in white boy roots music, this is it." Rafael Alvarez, Guitar World, 1983

"Ross pumped electric magic into every song he handled ... Ross gets hold of a tune and it ceases to be a standard. His stiletto sharp Gibson SG, plays off J.B. (Hutto's) sliding Epiphone guitar like Brooks and Belanger copping a double play in their prime. Ross could make 'God Bless America' stand on its head and rock." Rafael Alvarez, Baltimore Sun, 1981

"It's also worth noting that the show (Rick Danko & Richard Manuel of The Band) will be opened by Robert Ross, a Brooklyn bluesman who's lately played with Bo Diddley and is picking up a well deserved following of his own. It's good value for your money tonight at Folk City, in other words." David Hinckley, Daily News, 1985

"Some say the best cowboy songs are written by nice Jewish guys from Brooklyn, Robert Ross does the same for the blues ... If you closed your eyes ... you'd swear Ray Charles was playing Buddy Guy's guitar. One of the East Coast's best and most inventive bluesmen. White Boy Lost In The Blues' ... piece de resistance ... gut wrenching ... '69 Chevy' could probably get airplay next to a Thunderbirds shuffle ...tongue-in-cheek showmanship ... scorching soul" Robert Makin, Aquarian Magazine, 1991
