Guitarist Robb Henry is perhaps best known for his work with Parisota Hot Club, a band he formed to explore the gypsy jazz stylings of French guitarist Django Reinhardt in 2001.
Since early 2010, he has also been performing a distinctive blend of instrumental music with his self-titled trio featuring the guitarist with bassist Jim Chenoweth and drummer Ben Kaplan.
Live sets by the RHT are a melting pot of styles steeped in blues, jazz and ’60’s pop music. Familiar melodies, unexpected excursions, and sonic surprises reminiscent of vintage psychedelic Brit-Rock, all inhabit a fluid, musical landscape. Retro noire style movie themes, à la Henry Mancini and others, selections by Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix and the Beatles are standard set features.
