Note the comments below, including some haters. I think that’s the same guy who posted something similar on the Hollywood Reporter story.
It was great to play with Zhang Yong and Lu Wei. Tonight at the Orchard was even better… and tomorrow at Jianghu will be best. More coming.

“Best Chinese blues band I ever heard. Who knew?”
“You can hear the emotional commitment in every note of Woodie Wu’s playing. It is the sound of someone determined to find his own voice and destined to do so.”
“A great mix of Western and Eastern blues that proves blues is a universal language. This cool CD has lots of soul and there is definitely music for more than just a blues fan here. “
“A very pleasantly smoking CD…good tunes and good musicians clearly enjoying making great music together.”
“A can’t-miss Beijing phenomenon. It’s always Tsingtao time when these guys take the stage.”
“The very essence of world music: stone cold American blues with subtle, interesting Chinese overtones and killer slide guitar.”
“Woodie Alan has really pushed forward the development and growth of blues in China by playing hundreds of well-received shows. Woodie Wu is a new kind of guitar hero here — subtle and killer.”
