Joining Blair Clark for this months JAZZ BRUNCH is Tad Robinson... From his NYC roots and his Indiana and Chicago musical upbringing, Severn Records recording artist, Tad Robinson has caught the attention of the scene with his 10 Blues Music Award nominations (the Grammys of blues music) and his recordings for the Severn label as well as his earlier work on Delmark Records, and on Rounder Records as a member of the roots rock band, Big Shoulders. He tours widely in the U.S. and has played in over 20 countries worldwide with performances at some of the most important international blues festivals. With harmonica chops influenced by Sonny Boy Williamson and Junior Parker and a vocal style inspired by Otis Redding, Syl Johnson, and Al Green, among others, Robinson ranks as one of the most unique and talented bandleaders in the international blues and soul communities.

After being recruited by ace guitarist Dave Specter to join his Chicago band in the 1990s and record the albums, Blueplicity, and Dave Specter & The Bluebirds Live In Europe, Robinson's solocareer blossomed. He has gone on to record seven albums as leader, collaborating with some of the highest profile musicians in the genre including the Memphis Horns, Otis Clay, Anson Funderburgh, the Hi Rhythm Section, Kevin McKendree, Johnny Moeller, and Alex Schultz. In 2004, Robinson was signed to a record deal with Maryland-based soul/blues focussed, Severnm Records, a turning point in his career which moved him further into the blues spotlight. His releases for Severn have featured backing by the great Severn house band of Steve Gomes, Robb Stupka, Kevin Anker and Benjie Porecki and horn and string arrangements by the legendary producer-arranger Willie Henderson.
