Maxwell StreetLegendary guitarist Ronnie Earl pays tribute to his friend and former Broadcaster, pianist David Maxwell who died earlier this year, with this soulful blues/R&B album – a well-balanced mix of blues-inflected instrumentals and vocal tracks that feature the band’s regular singer Diane Blue.

The instrumental tracks – particularly the slow blues, showcasing the softer side of Earl’s guitar playing – fit comfortably with Blue’s convincing vocals on Eddy Arnold’s You Don’t Know Me and Gladys Knight’s (I’ve Got To Use My) Imagination. Earl’s unspoken love for his friend is palpable on Blues For David Maxwell.

Maxwell Street is out now via Only Blues.
