Product Description

Mississippi Moan is a breakthrough album. It is thoroughly blues drenched, yet at the same time it could only have sprung from the mind of someone as innovative as Bruce Katz. It is pure Bruce Katz music. Tracks such as "Hep-ology", "Night of Joy" and "The Prowler" contain all the "juice" of the blues while expanding its range. "In The Garden" is a solo piano performance by Bruce that is not to be missed. Sheer perfection. And be sure to check out the one and only Mighty Sam McClain on "Hanging On The Cross" and "I'm Gonna Love You". A match made in heaven!

" Put some soul in your roll."

-Steven Rochlin, SoundStage Magazine

" How do you spell class? I spell it K-A-T-Z. This is one of the best CDs I've heard in the last few years."

-Ann Wickstrom, Blues on Stage

"Katz cooks up a brilliant marriage of blues, jazz, gospel and soul."

-Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times

"With surprising eclecticism, this tight ensemble hits all the marks with deadly aim."

-Michael Renner, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

  1. 5 star Review by Joe Fitz

    Except for drummer Ralph Rosen, It wasn't long before this line up scattered. Having had the chance to see them live I could feel that they had something special. Songs like "The Prowler", "Hanging on the Cross", and "Praise House" still strike me the same way it did when I first experienced them. The combination of Julien Kasper on guitar and Bruce on organ was very special. Being a lyrically driven person I thought that words could make the songs better but I realized I was wrong. "In The Garden" and "Night of Joy " proved me wrong. This is one of those albums I would take to the deserted island. (Posted on 7/16/11)
