Blue Duchess History
Blue Duchess began in 2009 when Duke Robillard and Sunny Crownover decided to record a project to celebrate Les Paul and Mary Ford's music and more.
The concept was that Duke would engineer most of the project, emulating the techniques pioneered by Les Paul for multi-track recording. Several guitar tracks were needed for each song, to reproduce the unmistakeable feel of Les Paul's recordings. The idea was to make a recording in that style without copying Les solos, but in the process creating something in the true spirit of Les and Mary's sound. That theme is carried throughout "Tales From The Tiki Lounge".
