Rob Ickes on Niall Toner CD

We all know Rob is a great player, but you have to hear the new Niall Toner "Onwards and Upwards" CD. The "band" for most of the album is guitar, dobro, mando and bass. Even though the reso is almost omni-present everything Rob plays completely supports the songs and the singer and he's never in the way. It's not about hot licks - although they are ample - but about the tunes. What is amazing is that as much as he plays he never repeats himself. And every song is a winner and they're all different. The album sounds like an ensemble recording but it probably isn't. If you want to hear a lot of Rob Ickes at his best give it a listen.
