Introducing a new interview with David Vest about the release of Roadhouse Revelation, editor Tom D’Antoni of Oregon Music News had this to say:
Some say he’s the real deal. I say he is one of a kind. I once said he was one of the greatest living Boogie-Woogie pianists. I meant it then and I mean it now. Thing is, he’s so much more than that. He’s a tale-spinner, a griot, a philosopher, a contrarian; mean and nasty, soft and sweet, kind and gentle and tough as nails.
And funnier than hell.
