"I love this album. It features the raunchy jazz organ sounds of Jack McDuff, along with the boogie woogie piano sound of Gene Harris. There also are a few guest singers who are great. There is a super jazzy swingin' vocal arrangement of "Stormy Monday" that just blew me away. I started tapping my feet & clapping my hands & singin' along. Harris & McDuff battle back and forth on their instruments creating a really unique & unusual sound. I have several other organ/piano combo CD's but I'd say, this is the best & my most favorite!"
Brilliant piano & B-3 blues album

"This album helps you understand the difference between mere 'playing blues' and 'playing the blues'. Gene Harris and Jack Mc Duff (and the other the musicians on the album) play the blues with a great jazzy feel and with a clear love for this great music. Also, the album gives you one of the finest examples of Hammond B-3 playing that I know. In McDuff's playing you really hear the machine working and blowing, especially in the slow and delicate 'You don't know what love is'.
This album is an abslolute 'must have' if you love the blues. I have bought it for myself and I am now buying it for my father!"
Two giants of the blues keyboards combine.

"Captain Jack and Gene compliment each other in a momentous tribute to keyboard blues. This album will remain a pinnacle in the careers of each preeminent blues player."
A Great Cure for the Blues

"Gene Harris is a master practitioner of the jazzy side of the blues. His piano playing is soulful and down to earth, but sophisticated and nuanced at the same time. Jack McDuff's ever-tasteful Hammond B3 adds a healthy dose of funk to the mix. These gentleman build their solos like master craftsman, while avoiding the cliches used by some of their peers. Guest vocalist Barbara Morrison shines on the title cut - if listening to her doesn't put a smile on her face, you better have someone check your pulse! This was a spirited outing for all who participated and that translates into great fun for the listener."
