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." Though he isn't quite comfortable with the term "virtuoso," his skills certainly merit ... Read more in Amazon's Rod Piazza Store

Editorial Reviews

Soul Monster is Piazza's 24th album and 3rd release for Delta Groove. Over the last 44 years of playing music Piazza's virtuosity on the harmonica and respect for tradition has been celebrated by fans and critics alike. The Mighty Flyers have taken home the Blues Music Award for Band of the Year no less than 4 times and Rod himself was honored with a BMA for Instrumentalist of the Year in '98. Last year band member Honey Piazza took home her first BMA for the 2008 Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year. Interplay, spontaneity, and classic chops are what have kept the Mighty Flyers soaring above...and it's all here! Rest assured that Piazza & company deliver on a winning formula; a tantalizing recipe that's been brewing for decades.

I must admit to some prejudice here. I have been a fan of Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers for a long time. If you like modern blues, Rod, Miss Honey and the Flyers never disappoint, and this set is well up to their usual high standards. Rod is a virtuoso harp player, and he really is on top of his game here. As for Miss Honey--I know I have said this before--if there is a better boogie woogie-style piano player anywhere today, I would be very surprised.

While the blues form the foundation for this band's music, they are also more than capable of playing good rock n' roll, soul/R & B/funk music too. I think I heard some "Stax" influence here and there. The CD has a nice mix of vocals, instrumentals, original material from Rod and Miss Honey, as well as classic blues numbers by masters such as Jimmy Reed and Bill Broonzy.

Bottom line--a fine CD for blues fans and anyone who appreciates excellent musicianship !

Piazza and his band have been around a long time, but have consistently delivered great blues with a touch of swing, rock and boogie woogie. "Soul Monster" is another strong album from Piazza and company. Rod's harmonica sizzles throughout the disc, and Miss Honey continues to prove that she is one of the best boogie piano players on the planet. Throw in Henry Carvajal's scorching guitar and you have a fantastic mix of players that can tackle just about any kind of music you want. I enjoy this album very much and the material on these discs further illustrates why this band has had the incredible staying power that they have over the years.

I have listened to this CD over and over. It's just simply Great! Mr. Piazza does not disapoint on this one. Honey and the band also equally great.
