Dif­fer­ent bridges, in­cred­i­ble sighs! “I don’t re­ally think my gui­tar sound or my ap­proach to my gui­tar sound has changed at all in 40 years,” Robin Trower told Gui­tarist when we spoke to him last year, dur­ing the record­ing of this very al­bum. “It’s still a Strat – all right, it’s a slightly dif­fer­ent Strat than I used to play then – but it’s still a Strat through a pedal into a Mar­shall and that’s it, you know?” A mod­est mas­ter of un­der­state­ment, if ever there was one! Now, at the age of 72, Trower is still pound­ing out a pow­er­ful blues-in­fused mes­sage af­ter a ca­reer that has spanned six decades. He’s to­tally at home with the ‘power trio’ for­mat – the al­bum fea­tures bass player Liv­ing­stone Brown on oc­ca­sional key­board du­ties – and Time And Emo­tion lacks noth­ing in terms of har­monic den­sity or in­ten­sity of sound. Check out the sig­na­ture Strat-through-Dejá-Vibe tones on tracks such as Bit­ten By The Snake and You’re The One here to hear a true mas­ter at work – and watch out for Robin’s only live UK date this year as he hits Is­ling­ton Assem­bly Hall on 29 Novem­ber. [DM] Stand­out track: Bit­ten By The Snake For fans of: Jimi Hen­drix, Ste­vie Ray Vaughan
