About Sherman Robertson
Highly danceable blues from a respected guitar player and former sideman for Zydeco lynchpin Clifton Chenier. Robertson cut his teeth on the road with some of the greats of Cajun music, and his solo material reflects the attention to groove characteristic of that most party-down-friendly of genres. With a lead guitar method that's liable to saw your ears off with explosive, one-note bursts and Buddy Guy-style vamps, Sherman Robertson turns it up to ten and never lets up. Although his early records had a tough time capturing the feel of his blazing live show, Going Back Home (1998) comes as close as a recording can to doing so, with gritty production values and a stunning display of the red-hot Zydeco/Texas Blues amalgamation for which he's known.
