The same applies to Scott Dunbabin, who toured and recorded withBob for a decade in “Blues on the Boil”, the only band from the jazz scene to truly define Texas and Chicago Blues.

Bob, David and Scott are prote´ge´es of this incredibly gifted and passionate musician.

“The Trio captivated as they took the audience on a 2 hour fun filled, improvised musical journey, spanning the careers of all 3 players. What was created was music to inspire the next generation.
