Blue Heart Records Signs Rob Stone
New album, "Trio in Tokyo," is slated for May 21, 2021 release
By: Blue Heart Records
For his fifth career release, Stone has taken a marked departure from the full-band electric blues tradition as he embraces the raw synergy of a stripped-down acoustic trio. Born of a musical collaboration developed over a dozen years of performing in Japan, what began as a project intended for exclusive Japanese release has transformed into a musically sentimental project that was enthusiastically embraced and encouraged by the late, great Big Jay McNeely. Trio in Tokyo, slated for May 21, 2021 release, showcases the fine musicianship of pianist Elena Kato and bassist Hiroshi Eguchi (Mavis Staples, Sugar Blue), and is a testament to the love and respect for blues music across cultures and around the world.
"I have always enjoyed working with Rob when he has performed with Benny Turner, and have great respect for him as a musician and professional,"
Stone says, "I'm thrilled that this album is being released with Blue Heart Records, and I look forward to future opportunities to collaborate with musicians in the Blue Heart family, both at home and internationally."
Album preorders will begin on April 30 with the release of the single, "Blow Fish Blow!"
