Album Review

Boogie Woogie Kings [coll] – [Delmark]

Cousin Mary   1/6/2010   Blues, CD

Excellent sound quality and virtuoso boogie-woogie piano work on this Delmark release based on Euphonic Record masters. All tracks feature solo piano, some with mostly unintelligible vocals and shouts – track 9 features the glockenspiel-like tones of the celeste, track 10’s vocals are whistled. Lots of great walking bass – a text book example on track 12.

Notes: Albert Ammons is the father of sax great Gene Ammons. Meade Lux Lewis was an uncredited pianist in “It’s a Wonderful Life” in the bar where George Bailey gets thrown out.
