LA HORA DEL BLUES : SEP 2018
Vicente P. Zúmel, Radio PICA , LA HORA DEL BLUES - Barcelona, España.
Vicente Zúmel International Recipient 2013 KBA / http://www.lahoradelblues.com
"Certainly Jools Holland is the referent piano player in blues, rhythm and blues and boogie woogie British scene, besides running his own reputed television show in one of the BBC channels.
However, we now have the chance to discover a new piano player who also comes from United Kingdom and now lives in the south of Spain.
He is Daniel Smith, a musician with a great future ahead of him, as can be easily realized if you listen to these two CD's, which are number eight and ten in his already extensive discography. The first one, "Once In A Blue Moon", has eleven songs where he is backed by his British band. Of the eleven CD tracks, six are Daniel’s own compositions and the rest versions of well-known piano players such as "Honky Tonk Train Blues" by from Meade "Lux" Lewis, "Can't Stand Your Evil Ways" by James Burke Oden, which became popular played by Otis Spann, "Ain't Nobody Business" by Porter Grainger, "Rock Me Baby" by Jo Josea in collaboration with B.B. King and “Pinetop’s Boogie Woogie” by Clarence "Pinetop" Smith.
Daniel easily and fluidly moves through the whole album, perfectly supported by his effective, incisive band.
In the second recording, "Keys To The Highway", Daniel is surrounded by a handful of good friends and musicians who, over the years, have played with him. He has invited two other piano players, Roger Cotton, who is behind the Hammond on three songs and Matt Empson on piano on two cuts.
This second disc assembles nine great songs, all his own compositions, that clearly show we are not only dealing with an able blues, boogie and rock'n' roll piano player, but also a magnificent song-writer, gifted with a fine musical sensibility.
I hope Daniel Smith develops a long fruitful musical career in Spain to provide all music lovers with superb moments of excellent music."
