Thursday, 26 August 2010 12:00 AM Written by

SonsofAnarchy-Bobby2392Earlier this month at the Television Critics Association press tour during a press conference for FX's "Sons of Anarchy," I leaned over to a fellow critic and whispered: One of these guys is going to get arrested.

Duke Robillard returns with "Passport to the Blues"

Even playing jazz I never feel like a jazz player; I feel like a blues player who likes to swing."
