Jimmy Robinson is a guitar player's dream. He plays acoustic or electric guitars, blends in as a sideman, will amaze you as a soloist and has lots of tricks that can be observed but not easily imitated. Since the 1970's, Jimmy has been creating (the best) jazz/fusion/rock with Woodenhead "Blackout" "Water from the Moon" and guitar magic as a soloist. Check out "Big Blue"
When Cellist Helen Gillet is in New Orleans she can be found performing with many ensembles from duos, trios, sitting in with other groups or fronting her group Wazozo. She doesn't need anyone else to create and perform music because she is renowned for using a loop pedal that allows her to accompany herself and sing. There are many examples of this on Youtube including "I Have a Date With You", recorded at The Old U.S. Mint. She is sought after by performers as a soloist and has played with almost every musician in New Orleans.
Jimmy and Helen are so busy recording and touring with all their projects that this is a rare opportunity to hear this unique duo.
