"“New Orleans-based pianist Lee Pons lays his 88s and voice bare on Big Boogie Voodoo. A rollicking tribute to the Maharajah, James Booker (in Dr. James) precedes the almost elegiac, “Georgia”-flavored “Blues for Naw’lins,” the stately instrumental “Gospel According to Lee,” and the lascivious “Buttend Boogie.” “Me Minus You” is Ray-Charles-style blues. All this by way of saying that Pons shows a broader range than many blues and boogie-woogie pianists, although he can pound a Pete Johnson-style instrumental with the best of them (“Boogie-Robics”). While “Her Mind is Gone” bears the Caribbean polyrhythms of Professor Longhair’s playing, Pons sensibly sings it in his own, slightly gruff, style.” " - Tom Hyslop , Blues Revue
