Reviewers have compared his guitar work to Jimi Hendrix.

I enjoyed Blak and Blu because it had an interesting mix of music. There is a Bluesy ballad, a hard driving Rock and Roll song with a long guitar solo, a song with a soulful Motown feel, and a song that I enjoyed more for the insightful lyrics than the tune. His songs could be placed in many categories, but his music is usually labeled R & B.  He has earned Grammy awards in R & B and Rock. I downloaded the album from Hoopla, but it is also available as a CD.
