Bryan's own Nat Dove, a seasoned world traveler now based in California, brought his special affinity for Brazos Valley and all its blues heritage. He sat down like a majestic loin looking over his domain. And, after technical troubles, he played Ms. Cottons's piano as a trained master, leaving no one in doubt about his claim to be the Texas Boogie King. The impeccable skill and class of his performance was a music history moment.
