Chris Robinson Brotherhood At Infinity Hartford

Special to The Courant

Chris Robinson Brotherhood released "Barefoot in the Head" earlier this year. The former Black Crowes frontman is continuing to plow his preferred path, a rich seam of bluesy grooves and simmering soul-rock peppered with swirling jam touches.

Fans of Little Feat, old Rod Stewart, Otis Redding, the Band, and especially mid-'70s Grateful Dead will find a lot to like here. The CRB formed in 2014 and the band has already released five full-length studio albums, an EP and a live collection. Whatever phase of Robinson's career this is, it's a productive one.

Robinson has said that the whole adventure of playing music starts with writing songs and being in a band, letting the music take him out into the world. Robinson has somewhat jokingly embraced the language of the local food movement, talking about the CRB in terms of "farm-to-table" or "small-batch." It's about making stuff. Away from the Black Crowes, Robinson has moved toward songs with a little less riffage, with structures that unspool in long-form fashion.

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood performs at Infinity Hall, 2 Front St., Hartford, on Saturday, Nov. 4, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $39 to $60. 866-666-6306 and
