There is a statement on this CD jacket that states "Industrial Strength Blues," they should have added "and Boogie." This release represents some of the most authenic boogie piano I have heard in a long time and I thank Wendy DeWitt for that. There is not a lot of boogie players recorded today that I get to hear. Ms. DeWitt included many of her own compositions in this offering proving that she has the musician chops, her mastery of the old standards like "3 0'Clock Jump," "Texas Stomp," "Mess Around," and "Don't Want No Woman" shows her appreciation of the history of this music.

I am happy to have this release as a part of Jazz Now Direct mail order catalog. Available at 1-800-840-0465
