  • “A blend of uptown élan and down-home raucousness, shot through with sensual fervor, calculated to please listeners and dancers from the ‘burbs as well as the ‘hood.” – Living Blues

    “The fretwork is both tasteful and soulful throughout. The result, combined with Haddix’s accomplished vocal and lyric artistry, is a set that should appeal to aficionados of traditional postwar blues, and more contemporary, soul-accented sounds.” – The Reader

    “…This CD may not offer a ton of new life to the genre, but it proves blues can be traditional while having elements of soul injected into it. The end result is a contemporary sounding album that is a very satisfying listen.” – Chicago Blues Guide
