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! (J. Walter Scogin)
