I'm extremely proud of all of the CDs I've produced (or co-produced) and played on over the years. All of them have received great critical response, with the last three having been honored in Downbeat (the world's top jazz magazine) as among the "Best Albums Of The Year." [To read excerpts from CD reviews, visit the "CD REVIEWS" page at this website.] In a sense, my various CD projects represent my life's work.
With cdbaby.com no longer selling physical CDs, I'm now making these CDs available for purchase directly thru this website. You can preview tracks or purchase the CD (by clicking on the "ADD TO CART" link). To pay for the CD, use PayPal. Shipping is included in the $20 price; just email me your mailing address and I'll personally mail you your CD. I hope you love the music!

This recording was truly a rare find: the groundbreaking Paul deLay Band at the height of its powers, performing at one of Europe's top blues festivals in 1997. Blues Matters [UK] called it, "A gem!" The CD was a 2018 Blues Music Awards nominee for "Best Historical Album" (the other nominees: John Lee Hooker, Luther Allison, and Jimmy Reed).
