Album Notes
Tommy Keys’ 3rd solo effort, released January 31st 2010. Co-produced by Mario Staiano of Savoy Brown, “The Man in the Moon” showcases Tommy’s sizzling piano work and soulful vocals. The material is varied, containing seven originals including a tribute to Big Joe Duskin, “Big Joe the Boogie Man”, along with songs from Memphis Slim (“Born with the Blues”), Floyd Dixon (“My Wish”) and Professor Longhair (“Hadacol Bounce”).

The title song, The Man in the Moon, is a moody type of bounce, with a New Orleans feel. Another of the original tunes on the disc, No Money, is a comical take on making ends meet while having a good time. Tommy calls it a jab at “Rap-Boogie-Blues”. Tommy cranks into high gear with Rock A Boogie Woogie, a high energy tune about a band playing on a Saturday night and the excitement to crowd feels.

"Tommy Keys provides deep blues satisfaction..."
- Tom Hyslop, Blues Revue Magazine

"Tommy Keys is a triple threat of songwriter, engaging vocalist and ace barrelhouse boogie and Blues pianist..."
- Noggin, Blues Matters! Magazine

"It’s hard to listen to the work of the International Blues Challenge Solo Finalist and convince yourself he’s from Long Island and not New Orleans. Combine his thoughtful lyrics with his smooth but pleading voice, and you have…the real piano boogie deal."
- Rob Paullin , Blues Blast Magazine
