Editor's note: Bruce Roberts? Think skinny black dude with a 5 o'clock shadow who wears gauze thin khakis and stretched open silk shirts while belting out his heartfelt R&jazz&B tune on some Caribbean island with an exotic looking woman who is seemingly unaffected frolicking in the surf. Wrong guy. This is a straight-laced white guy who looks like a college professor in a smoking jacket. The music's not quite "ME" but the jacket is superb. Both album and personal attire! Plus I have a good pal named Beardsley Rummel who calls himself Cool Fool. Kinda strange, eh? Yeah, that's coming from a dolt who signs blog posts with the self-penned moniker of Wörtwurst.
