Biography

Rod Piazza, considered one of the preeminent harmonica players around, has become a commanding presence at the forefront of today's blues scene. Billboard has also called him "a star contemporary blues songwriter, as well as the star musician verging on a broader breakthrough."

Editorial Reviews

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. And we've added a bonus track, 'Back Door Man' to the original album. Out of print for years!

This is my favorite Piazza offering. I spoke with Honey about three years ago and it was her's too. Low Down Dog is as hot as they come. Great blues by a hard working, incredible band.

I don't think the recordings do justice to the shere virtuoosity of Honey Piazza. She's the best blues piano player I have ever heard. Her left hand is as strong as her right and she's a wonderful performer. Bravo to the whole band. Each one is outstanding. Frances Sherwood. South Bend, Indiana

As mentioned "Low Down Dog" is smokin'. Also "Buzzin'" solely features Honey on piano (magical) and Jimmy Bott on drums. You are challenged to sit still during this tune and most others. You will find out that you are movin' and shakin', but don't really know how to dance. The group usually plays these above 2 mentioned tunes as staples in their live shows.

By the way the drummer and guitarist have changed in today's incarnation, but Rod and crew know how to pick replacements.

Keep your eyes peeled for when this group comes to your town, you will be glad you did, as long as you don't have a hole in your soul.
