Jim Hynes of Elmore Magazine writes in review of “Made In Texas”, “With this, his ninth album, the talented guitarist and soulful vocalist Murali Coryell continues to expand his repertoire, yet his deep soul certainly remains intact.” “With ‘Made in Texas’, Larry’s son, Murali Coryell offers everything the music lover could wish for: good songs, sufficient variation and an excellent band. More than reason not to doubt his new release!...“ (ESC for Rootstime.be).
