"Man, Elvis would love you!”

“Very, very fine musician.
You really ought to hear him.”
- The King of Rock’n’Roll, Chuck Berry
“Fine rockin’ piano playing.”
- Joe Sasfy, The Washington Post, Time Warner
“The best Boogie Woogie piano playing I've ever heard.”
- Arch Campbell, NBC News
“Everyone in my row leaned forward, for Daryl Davis was pumping the keys like a reborn Jerry Lee Lewis, rattling Boogie Woogie rolls out of all 88 keys!”
- Geoffrey Himes,
The Washington Post
Davis’ piano work impresses with his winning combination of technique and abandon, and his vocals are strong and assured – black rock’n’roll lives!
That Davis can pursue such a serious quest and create music as joyous as American Roots is worth celebrating.

“Whether a searing Blues or a pounding Boogie Woogie, Daryl Davis practices what he preaches; to make his audience happy. His CD, American Roots, signals the arrival of a major Blues voice.”
