Known for her robust voice and rich tones, jazz vocalist Renee Manning came to fame in the jazz world as a big band singer with the Mel Lewis Orchestra from 1983 to 1989 -- the longest tenure of any vocalist associated with the organization. She's since performed with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Sir Roland Hanna, Mark Murphy, Howard Johnson, Joe Williams, the Mingus Big Band and the Chico O'Farrill Afro-Cuban Orchestra. As a solo artist, Manning's most recent album, All Grown Up, showcases the Grammy-nominated singer's soothing, quieter side. Learn More

What do Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Jay McShann, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Hammond, Jimmy Witherspoon, Dr. John, Maria Muldaur, Roomful of Blues, and The Rockin’ Highliners all have in common? The answer: Duke Robillard. Guitarist, leader, songwriter, singer, producer, session musician, and a one-man cheering section for the blues in all its forms and permutations, Robillard is a true legend in the blues community. A Grammy nominee and four-time recipient of the Best Blues Guitarist award from the Blues Music Awards (formerly the W.C. Handy Awards), he has won accolades from critics and fellow musicians alike. B.B. King himself called him “one of the great players,” and The Houston Post labeled him “one of God’s guitarists.”
None of this praise goes to Robillard’s head, however. He’s still on the road, playing as many as 250 dates a year, and he’s still proving, night after night, that his true talent is bringing people out to hear the music, appreciate the show, and dance to the blues. Although he’s perhaps best known for founding Roomful of Blues with Al Copley in the late ’60s, he has also played with The Fabulous Thunderbirds, shared studio time with Bob Dylan, Ruth Brown, Johnny Adams, John Hammond, Pinetop Perkins, Ronnie Earl, and others, and led his own prolific solo career with his band. A musician in command of a full range of talents, he is a complete artist who, over 40 years into his career, is at the height of his creative powers. His latest recording, Low Down and Tore Up, came out in 2011.
