"Boogie woogie has sometimes been described as limited and repetitive. Not so this set though! It had me hooked right from reading the sleeve notes, a wonderful, detailed interview with Detroit pianist Bob Seeley, who met Meade Lux Lewis (one of the original Boogie Woogie Trio) back in the 40s, and who left his mark on the young man as the four Lewis tracks here testify. The younger Spanish blues and boogie ace Lluís Coloma has come to my attention many times over the last few years and I can confirm that he is one excellent musician so put Coloma and Seeley together for a four-handed boogie fest and the expected fireworks sure do happen on this live set recorded in Madrid in 2011. The basses roll like thunder, but these guys can also slow it down and think outside the box (try Taboo).

Bob Seeley describes boogie-woogie as nothing but happy blues and thats just how I felt after listening to this. If youve ever been unsure about boogie, buy this CD. Recommended? You bet!"

Blues Matters Magazine

"Best of the Year [...] Definitely worth mentioning though are Swing Alleys CD by veteran pianist Bob Seeley and younger Spanish boogie ace Lluis Coloma, International Boogie Woogie Explosion".
