    -What the critic’s are saying…-

“Blues Music Award-winning keyboardist, songwriter, and composer Anthony Geraci unleashes a lifetime of greatness on his new solo album Blues Called My Name. Available now on Blue Heart Records, the set finds Geraci sounding better than ever on a winning mix of vocal tracks and instrumentals. There are no missteps on the record, though, and nothing here misses the mark. Anthony Geraci is a beast on all levels and may well be the finest keyboardist in roots music today. Mike O’Cull-Rock & Blues Muse”       Blues Called My Name est un album très réussi proposé par le pianiste de Boston qui, outre en fait d’être un musicien de grand talent, est un homme d’une grande gentillesse doublé d’un véritable transmettre de connaissances qui donne pour la formation des jeunes ! Fred Delforge ZICAZINE/European Blues Union. ” Every cut on Blues Called My Name is solid, with Geraci showcasing his outstanding keyboard work throughout. It’s just one more piece of evidence that Geraci is one of the better instrumentalists in the blues world today.”Bill Mitchell-Blues Bytes.Blues Called My Name  is een fantastisch album.” Gerrit Schinkel-Bluestown Music ( The Netherlands). “It just doesn’t get any better than this .” Richard Ludmerer- Making A Scene.
