I can't remember the exact route through which I came to this album. I was looking for some fresh new blood in my CD collection and I think I started with a 'Google' search for "CD blues piano" or something like that. I saw an encouraging reference to David Maxwell in one of the hits, and then came to Amazon to find out more. I then took advantage here of the excellent MP3 downloads, and from that point on my decision was made! A purchase was in order. This is definitely not a deep cerebral CD - this is good-natured high-energy fun! Even the slower numbers are bursting with verve. The piano playing throughout is tremendous - I don't know if there are any of the 88 keys he didn't touch during the performances, but I wasn't aware of them! David Maxwell, as an experienced sideman with many other blues players, obviously knows a thing or two when it comes to selecting his own sidemen. The band are excellent - crisp percussion, solid bass, rasping saxes, and blues guitar reminiscent of the Kings. Only one track has vocals, but as I was really looking for an instrumental album when I started my search this is no hardship. My only slight negative comment is with the old standard "Honky Tonk Train". I was really looking forward to hearing Maxwell's take on this, but after a long thunderous intro he takes off at an incredible rate. So fast, indeed, that I feel he loses some of the syncopated rolling gait of this tune. It's undoubtedly technically impressive, but I can't help feeling I've enjoyed other less proficient performances more. Anyway, that really is a minor aside. Go for this album with the full confidence that the MP3 samples give you a good impression of this artist and this recording. If you like them, you'll love the CD.

I love the blues... and David Maxwell can certainly play the 88's! Whether it's Chicago blues or down-home bayou blues, this is a "gotta have it" album for your collection!

Great fun! Maxwell lays down the keys on the 88, and doesn't let up! I bought this after hearing one of the tracks ("Breakdown on the Bayou") on KPLU, and I loved it, so I listened to more of the tracks, and decided to buy it.
I wouldn't call it "slow" blues, such as T'aint Nobody's Business, or How Blue Can You Get?, or other B.B. King classics, but it makes up for it with just plain fun.
