When it comes to swing and jump blues, there is a single name where both guitar styles converge--Duke Robillard. Duke is a treasure trove of classic phrasing, incorporating the moves of such iconic musicians as Charlie Christian, Tiny Grimes, T-Bone Walker and Charlie Parker. "Uptown Stomp" is heavily influenced by Duke and does its best to recreate some of his signature phrasing.
