"Anthony Geraci is a perennial BMA nominee on keyboards, and he's certain to receive honors for this disc, too, teaming with his band, the Boston Blues All-Stars, and trying something new here.  He dazzles on the 88s, paying tribute to his musical forebears.  But it's no cover album.  It's an all-original effort that delivers a traditional feel throughout." - Marty Gunther, Red, Hot 'n Blues Music Reviews, Chicago Blues Guide


About Anthony

Pianist, Hammond organist and composer Anthony Geraci was born in New Haven, CT in 1954. His interest in playing piano began at age four when he told his parents “I want a piano!”  Kind of an odd request when most kids want a new baseball glove or bicycle. His parents weren’t musical-not even a record player at their house- but they always supported his undeniable passion for music. They soon bought a Kimball Grand Piano that his mother paid $4 a week to own. Lessons at the Neighborhood School of Music, affiliated with Yale University, soon followed. At around the age of 16 he befriended a fellow musician, Ed Cherry. They began listening to music together after school and one day Ed played a Jimmy Rogers recording, Chicago Bound, that literally changed his life. Ed went on to be Dizzy Gillespie’s guitarist for many years.
