King: "I´m no critic. I never would say this music is bad - this music is good. I listen to all kind of music. I listen to jazz of famous jazz musicians and it doesn´t move me.
I listen to blues of famous players and it doesn´t moves me. But, yeah, this music does! This music really moves me. You have a unusual sound, .... really, a unusual sound.
I love this kind of modern blues! You can count on me, if you like you can use what I said in your papers - I mean what I say. What you are doing is very good. You have a good beat, good arrangements, good horns, good musicians - everybody, it´s well done, the harp is great - what you want more ? Gentlemen, I'm really sorry that I only could listen to your music for a short time. But I tell you - what I heard was really excellent! Absolutely" Statements of outstanding musicians: Lucky Peterson: "That's it! Excellent Performance!" Louisiana Red: "Hey, this is a fantastic band! I really enjoyed to play with them! Damn - what a gig!" Chris Farlow: "This band is excellent, definitly!" Luther Allison: "This band is really on the way.
Great band - and the harp player is incredible!" Ralph Pennland: "I heard this music and thought: Damn, what a band is this ? A few weeks ago I had recordings with Koko Taylor and Albert Collins and I tell you this band is good too ! Call me, Frank, if you are sick - I would love to sit in" Peter Erskine: "Wow, good fat beat - I like it!" Sterling W. Reaveley, Promoter Columbus/USA: "The best German blues band I ever heard!" Dennis Chambers / Gary Grainger: "Pretty good, ....pretty good!! Please send me this CD. It sounds great, good played and it's modern. Fucking good." Toscho' Todorovic, Blues Company: "Sehr gute Produktion. Gerade für ein CD-Debüt ein unglaublich hohes Niveau." Dieter Kropp, Radio Bremen: "Sehr gute Band.
Erstaunlich modern und vielseitig. Wirklich eine CD, die sich positiv aus der Masse hervorhebt." Detlev Hoegen, Crosscut Rec./Radio Bremen: "Gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut. Für unsere Breitengrade ungewohnt kalifornisch; sprich laid back, virtuos und perfekt im Klang." Read more on Last.fm.
