Heavily influenced by Little Walter and George "Harmonica" Smith (he played with Smith in a band called Bacon Fat), harpist and vocalist Rod Piazza has been at the center of the West Coast blues scene for over three decades, and this 1991 release is one of his tastiest, with some luscious piano licks from wife Honey Alexander. Includes bonus tracks.
Entertainment Weekly - 4/5/91
B - "...play barroom blues with supper-club flair. The relaxed, swinging quality of their music starts with the fluid bounce of the rhythm section, continues with the sturdy support of guitarist Alex Schultz and pianist Honey Alexander, and is rounded off by Piazza's exquisitely understated blues harp."
Down Beat - 5/913 Stars
- Good - "Piazza has Little Walter's harmonica style down cold"
