Rockin' the Spirit: Piano Blues, Boogie & Spirituals

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
After attending an annual boogie-woogie concert organized by Mark Braun Mr. B., Monty Alexander headed a recording project that paid tribute to both boogie-woogie and spirituals. Five pianists participated, performing two numbers apiece, with four of the players all but Alexander playing a pair of duets. Alexander, Eric Reed, and Johnny O'Neal are better known nationally than Bob Seeley and Mark Braun, but all five pianists fare well, stretching beyond boogie-woogie and spirituals to include a few swing standards and even a bluish duet on Benny Golson's "Whisper Not." Recommended to boogie-woogie fans and the curious.
