What a keyboardist!
J. Walter Scogin | 09/12/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album really wasn't what I was expecting! I go to New York City blues clubs a lot, and I remember seeing Dona open for Robert Charels at Mondo Cane a couple of years back. What a great keyboardist and performer--she knocked me out then, and she's just as good on her new album. Wanna know how find this lady is? She's the regular keyboardist in Shemeka Copeland's band...enough said!!"
Unbelievable! Outstanding! Incredible!

"These are just some of the words I would use to desrbile Dona Oxford's amazing keyboard style. This is the best Blues, Boogie Woogie, and Barrel House album of recent times. Her Vocals are a unique powerful blend of hard core blues, and sweet New Orleans Jazz. One of those albums you wish would never end. Ms. Oxford is deffinatley someone to watch out for in the future, because talent like this dosen't come around that often. five stars isn't enough. I would give it 10 if I could. After listening to Rowena Said..I can't wait to here Rowena Say some more."
Now this is high powered blues!!!

"This is a great CD! Although I am partial to Texas blues, Doña Oxford is equally exceptional. She has the keyboard abilities that matches the talents of the Texas master guitarist, Stevie Ray Vaughan. With equal fortes of both the keyboard and her vocal abilities, Doña Oxford offers us the old style pianist blues, fashioned after her mentor, Johnnie Johnson. From the slow blues title track, Rowena Said, to the exceptional fast paced boogie woogie tune, It's Rainin', Oxford exemplifies the true talents of a master blues pianist. Her vocals are likened to no other singer. The way that she belts out the tunes, while pounding away at the keyboard, with so much force, drive, and enthusiasm, cannot be matched by anyone in the business today. Even Johnnie Johnson has passed the torch to his "favorite keyboard player!" I understand that Doña's stint with Shemekia Copeland is now over, and she's back to writing and performing her own stuff again. This couldn't happen soon enough, for me, and I can't wait until her next release!"
