Bob Malone / Press

““A true virtuoso and crowd-pleaser – he showed that while he is a fantastically technically accomplished player, he fully knows the meaning of showmanship as well.””

““Bob Malone has brewed up a heady mixture of rock, blues and New Orleans soul over the years and “Mojo EP” is a perfect sampler for the upcoming “Mojo DeLuxe” album.””

““If he could find a way to throw that Steinway grand over his shoulder the way a hot dog guitar player does, I think he would.””

“For an indie artist, the path to success is often long, built on perseverance and a commitment to the music. Exhibit A is Bob Malone.”

“John Fogerty's five-man backup band was slouch-free — with the show-stealer trophy going to a shaggy-haired Bob Malone.”

“A new peak in what's been a rather mountainous career, Malone's latest shows off everything that makes him dear to his loyal fans." ”

“Malone appeals to the roots and Blues audience with heartfelt ballads, nuanced arrangements and a never-ending tour schedule. If one were to take the Blues credibility of Dr. John, the songwriting of Jimmy Webb and the arrangement skills of early period Elton John, we see Malone in vesture that suits him perfectly”

“Ain’t What You Know is Malone’s latest offering and features guest appearances by Lee Sklar (Jackson Browne, James Taylor), Marty Rifkin (Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty) and Mike Baird (Journey, Bob Dylan, Joe Cocker). It is a very different CD to “Born Too Late,” leaning more to the commercial market, which is not a criticism, because the music and lyrical quality remain constant”

“US blues pianist Bob Malone cakewalked all over the keys with rip-roaring pyrotechnics that were part skill and part showmanship, often eschewing the piano stool and jumping around like a rock star. [But] beneath the banter and the wizardry Bob Malone revealed a raw and splendidly large heart.”

“The presence of first-call players like Leland Sklar and Marty Rifkin, alongside the artist’s New Orleans drenched piano, raises the bar for this troubadour. On “Ain’t What You Know,” Bob Malone is clearly in the big leagues.”

“Nimble playing and smart, sassy lyrics, There’s plenty to like here.”

“By the time Malone belted out the first stanza, the audience was his. The room roared like a turbine and the audience spent the rest of the night cheering for Malone as if he were the headliner.”

Jersey City Journal

“Bob Malone doesn't just accompany himself on piano. He supports his singing with pulsating, roaring keyboard work that grabs you and shakes you until you cry for mercy. ”

“Blazing and beautiful. Burning and elegant. Unique and timeless. Malone contains multitudes of rhythm, soul, jazz, blues, smoke and magic. It sounds as if he’s slept inside a baby grand for years, so intimate is he with the alphabet of the ivories. [Born Too Late] is one for the ages. ”
