MITCH WOODS & HIS ROCKET 88’S
Half Note Jazz Club |

some reviews from their official webpage: http://www.mitchwoods.com/devl/swf_html/index.html

Mitch Woods…give heart and soul to jump blues… Woods sings with smooth ebullience and hammers the piano keys with the unchecked gaiety of mentors Professor Longhair and Amos Milburn.” ~ Frank-John Hadley, Downbeat

“Piano master Mitch Woods is one of the brightest exponents of West Coast swing, Kansas City boogie-woogie, and Chicago blues. Woods also has a fine touch for New Orleans’ piano polyrhythms.”  ~ Scott Jordan, Offbeat

“1t’s not easy to play that Professor Longhair piano lick – those rippling rumba triplets in the right hand against a driving, eight-to-the-bar boogie in the left – but San Francisco’s Mitch Woods plays it as well as anyone outside New Orleans ever has… This may be  complicated music to play, but it’s very easy music to hear. There’s something about the syncopated bounce of boogie-woogie that lifts one’s spirits even as it shifts one’s shoulders and hips.” ~ Geoffrey Himes, Washington Post

“Few pianists around have better captured the definitive boogie-blues, eight-to-the-bar styles of Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson, Otis Spann, Meade Lux Lewis…and all the rest – Woods is one of them.” ~ Philip Elwood, SF Examiner

“One of the top boogie/blues piano men around…” ~ Dan Aquilante, NY Post
“…As a keeper of the flame, Woods has always been able to blast headlong through the inferno on the strength of his dazzling boogie-woogie chops. ~ Derk Richardson, SF Bav Guardian

“‘Keeper Of The Flame  has to be one of the most uplifting recordings to have vibrated my woofers in a long time…it’s like witnessing one of those breathtaking moments of music where the unspoken communication and the resulting musical dialogue can raise a goose bump or two. .It has the power to charm and to entertain the power to inspire and to motivate. …Definitely do not miss out.”~ Maureen DelGrosso, Blues Revue

“If it takes 88 keys to open the door to your heart, then pianist Mitch Woods ought to be your doorman” ~ Bill Kisliuk, Southland Blues
