Robert Randolph & The Family Band sign with Blue Note

THE RENOWNED pedal steel rock blues guitarist Robert Randolph has signed to Blue Note Records. The first Robert Randolph & The Family Band album for the label will feature guest appearances from Trombone Shorty and Carlos Santana. Said Blue Note president Don Was, "Robert Randolph is an American Original. . . He has mastered what is, arguably, the most complex instrument in the world and developed a unique voice that is equal parts street-corner church and Bonnaroo. Robert's new studio album finally captures the energy and excitement of his legendary live performances. . . We are honoured that he has chosen Blue Note Records as his new home." CR
