While most current artists who do New Orleans music focus on either Meters-style funk or modern brass-band sounds, Woods is one of the very few who take it back to the 1950s. Through the power of his vocal and keyboard delivery and his employment of world-class musicians from the city itself, he succeeds brilliantly in keeping the tradition burning brightly.Lee Hildebrand
Woods brings his personality to the material, playing some of the best articulated piano rolls and trills of his career and delivering what is hands down his best vocal performance.John Swenson
Woods exhibits the knowing spirit of someone who’d grown up listening to New Orleans r&b greats on the radio while living smack dab in the middle of the bayous and canals of the Atchafalaya Basin.Frank John Hadley
Backed by The Rocket 88’s… Woods delivers a masterclass in piano blues that opens with the classic Crescent City stylings of “Solid Gold Cadillac” and relentlessly delivers blues and R&B of the highest order right through to the closing “House Of Blue Lights”.
Woods’ energetic renditions of Smiley Lewis’ under-appreciated work make “Gumbo Blues” more than worthy to stand alongside New Orleans best recordings.Don Sikorski
Boogie pianist Woods may make his home in San Francisco, but at least part of his heart is in New Orleans.Vintage Guitar
