"One of the most complex and creative forms of instrumental blues...” – Dan Morgenstern, liner notes
Limited Edition: 5000 copies
3 CDs - $44.00
When it comes to boogie woogie, Meade Lux Lewis, Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson and Jimmy Yancey are the innovative pantheon and some of their finest performances are represented here. Later interpreters like Freddie Slack, Kenny Kersey, Teddy Wilson, and Mary Lou Williams are also included.
To compliment this unique art form, we've included some classic piano and vocal blues to the mix. In addition to blues masters Jimmy Yancey and Cripple Clarence Lofton (with guitarist Big Bill Broonzy), we've added the great blues shouter Joe Turner accompanied by Ammons, Lewis and Johnson as well as two almost forgotten OKeh sessions: Joe Sullivan's Café Society Orchestra and the Benny Carter All-Star Orchestra date.
These classic boogie woogie and blues piano sides recorded for Victor and Columbia during the years 1935 and 1941 are finally under one roof. Although many were initially released as singles and many were housed together in early album form, much of this material has never been issued on CD.
