June 1, 2012
David Maxwell’s Maximum Blues featuring Alley Stoetzel, with Amadee Castenell, Troy Gonyea, Jon Ross, Per Hanson, and David Maxwell.
Fresh from Memphis with a 2012 Blues Music Awards Acoustic Album of the Year Award under his belt, piano man David Maxwell, along with special guest vocalist Alley Stoetzel accompanied by Maximum Blues sidemen (Amadee Castenell, Troy Gonyea, Jon Ross, Per Hanson), returns to raise the roof. Maxwell’s recent “Conversations in Blue” record is an innovative tribute to the late great Chicago blues keyboard king Otis Spann, who was Maxwell’s musical mentor for nearly half a century. “The album is filled with musical and sentimental precision, and stands as a heartfelt tribute from student to master …” (Ashley Kahn, author of Kind of Blue: the Making of the Miles Davis Masterpiece)
