Pithy Quoteth

Charlie delivers a set that manages to be energetic and laid back simultaneously. The all-original tunes are a deft blend of Blues, Country, and Florida Swamp music. My favorite is “No Mo Money”, to which many of us can relate! Throughout, rock-steady rhythm supports Charlie’s soulful vocals and unique guitar style. Along with the songs on the CD, the DVD also has some backstage home movies that are quite entertaining.
- Conrad Sewer, Suncoast Blues Society


Mr. Morris has the sound that I love. He knows how to pick a guitar and make it sing. There is that down-home blues/rock and roll quality about his songs that makes my feet begin tapping as soon as he hits the first note.

In concert, he and the band have that funky tightness that might remind you of bands like Little Feat.
- Bonds Big Leather Couch, January 2009


"Superb playing, dynamics and swing!"
- Serge Warin, Radio Canal Bleu, Objat, France

Local Spotlight

Maryville Daily Times, May 2006

"Musicians cobbling together tracks for a live album have a tough choice to make — do they zero in on the songs that display the best musicianship, or do they home in on the ones that best capture the buoyant spirit of playing live?"

Blues Matters, September 2005

"Audience participation was the name of the game and the rapturous applause at the end showed how much this intriguing group of musicians had been appreciated."

Blues In Britain, September 2005

"Playing an infectious mix of original songs and some rarely- heard covers, the band eased the crowd into the weekend. Special mention must go to the ultra-talented sideman Devin Rice, who displayed great virtuosity on harp, keys and guitar! The band was obviously well appreciated by the crowd."

Authentic Blues, 2000

"What's the point of all this crap? Isn't what the album sounds like what matters? Who cares what size or color I am as long as people like the music?"



CD Reviews

La Hora del Blues, February 2010

"A feast of different sonorities from good varied Louisiana music to shuffles, slow blues and a little bit of up-tempo rockabilly. A master lesson in groove, wild, free and easy dancing, that you should enjoy with a glass of whisky or gin in your hand."

Wildy's World, July 12, 2009

"When is a major label going to pick up on this guy?"

Blues & Rhythm, May 2006

"Regular visitors to Britain these days from their home base in Florida, Charlie Morris and crew have a growing following and listening to this CD - Charlie's third for BluesPages - recorded in England last year, it is not hard to understand why."

12 Bar Rag, December 2002

"Charlie my boy, you've outdone yourself. "Still Got 'Em" is as tasty a CD as I've run across this whole century!"

Live in Fribourg review - Rootstime, 2013

Je hoort vrij snel dat de heren uitstekende muzikanten zijn. Gitarist en frontman Charlie Morris, tevens auteur van alle nummers die op deze uitgave terug te vinden zijn, is een prima gitarist.

What A Scene! review - Rootstime, 2008

Ik zal deze een plaatsje geven op mijn "bovenste plank", vlak in de buurt van mijn cd speler, want ik heb zo 't idee dat ik er nog veel ga naar terug grijpen.
