Brooks, Hadda – “Queen of The Boogie” – [Bayside Record Dist.]

Looks can be deceiving, and while the smiling woman on the album cover looks lovely and elegant, she probably can pack a punch, if her amazing piano playing is any indication. She shows chops for sure in each of the songs on this album. Remember the Scott Joplin we added a while back? This is in a league with that. Fantastically energetic boogie and blues, most recorded in 1945-1950, not a one of these will disappoint. Sometimes Brooks is joined by sax, bass, drums, and guitar. She sings on one (B4). I know this gem will get a lot of play. Read the sleeve notes for more facts about this gifted musician.
