Review:

"An instant classic, earning an immediate place at the top table. These are deeply felt, expertly realised and above all authentic pieces that will not only hopefully open up the world of blues piano playing to a new wave of enthusiasts, but which are classics in their own right."
"Tim Richards belongs in the category of authentic jazz composers - he stands as perhaps the leading pioneer in this field."
"Outstanding and lavish presentation, brilliant educational content, foot-tapping CD recording and very reasonable price...Blues, Boogie & Gospel Collection proves itself not simply as the best 'jazz piano' publication of the year, but probably the best of the decade so far."
