Critical Acclaim

Very satisfying. Effective characterization. - Catholic Standard

A hidden talent. Wesley (Daryl Davis), a half-starved bum who stumbles in looking for a meal and some work, later calmly sits down at the piano and reveals superb talent as a musician.
-
Montgomery Sentinel

The production with Marcia Gay Harden, Daryl Davis and the rest of the cast delivers.
-
The Washington Post

Daryl Davis is expertly refreshing. - Montgomery Journal

The characters are generally as amusing ast they are quaint. Even more rewarding is the virtuoso Jazz piano playing of Daryl Davis. - The Baltimore Sun

It is funny, after all, the dancer and the piano player are good enough to entertain the real audience, not just the one in the saloon (on stage); as played and danced by Daryl Davis and Jesse Foreman. They both are very good indeed. - WETA PBS TV

His talent makes the production great entertainment. - The Gazette

The best Boogie Woogie piano playing I’ve ever heard! - Arch Campbell – NBC TV

One of the deepest benches of acting talent in TV history (said of actors on The Wire).
- Entertainment Weekly

The Wire is my favorite television show. - President Barack Obama
