"While much of barrelhouse music is rhythm you feel energize your body, this is mellow-you-out blues. Well, okay, in "Boogie Woogie Minuet" Price plays a striding bass par exellence. "Keepin' Out of Mischief" requires only a bit of imagination to place you in a speak-easy. "Honey Grove Blues" puts you in a smokey, sophistocated bar - late, very late. In short, this is music that moves you. You can't not listen while it is playing.
What is perhaps most surprising, however, is the apparent lack of ego of Sammy Price. He is as superb in a background role as he is as a soloist. He allows the band members' their own opportunities to shine. Most notable are the clarinet of Sandy Brown in "In the Evening", Ruan O'Lochlainn's guitar in "Hungarian Rapsody", and the close trumpet/trombone work of Keith Smith and Roy Williams in "Royal Garden Blues".
Sammy Price is one of the best in blues piano and this recording showcases him well."
