Consumer Guide Reviews:

Chicago Urban Blues [Antilles, 1977]
Jr. languished in a byway of my shelves for over a year, which is the way it is with laid-back piano blues--hard to tell one record from another without trying. This broke through--insinuating, witty, midnight music with loving respect for the verities, a flawless exposition of the conventions of the form. B+
