Sonny & Brownie’s Last Train is as close as anyone living in the 21st Century will get to enjoying Terry and McGhee in concert. If you love the old masters like I do – or simply are just curious about the way they truly sounded in concert – pick this one up today. It’s Sonny and Brownie live – and taken to another level. – BluesBlast Magazine
Beautiful dark vocals by Davis, who also delivers impressive guitar work on both six and twelve stings, while the harmonica playing of Poggi equals the virtuosity of Terry. - Jazzism, The Netherlands.
