“Victor Puertas is one of the most naturally gifted musicians I have encountered during my long career in the blues. John Wooden, the great basketball coach, once famously said, "You can't teach height."

Having already established himself as one of the finest blues harmonica players in the world, he now brings those talents to the piano where he demonstrates an equal gift on the keyboard. His playing is sophisticated and compelling with a sparkling yet muscular touch - full of rhythmic drive and always right in the pocket with the perfect feel for the groove he's playing. And his singing is convincing as well. There are few musicians with such a bountiful arsenal of talent. In Victor Puertas, the blues are truly in good hands for years to come!”
