Another classic release in AVID’s Essential Collection series introduces you to the many faces of Boogie Woogie.
This superbly re-mastered 2CD set covers all the bases from Cow Cow Davenports “Cow Cow Blues” from 1928 to Montana Taylor captured in 1929 with “Detroit Rocks” and “Indiana Avenue Stomp” through to 1930 and Pinetop Smiths “Pinetop’s Boogie Woogie”.
Bringing us to the edge of the forties we encounter Albert Ammons, Meade Lux Lewis and Pete Johnson performing as The Boogie Woogie Trio alongside Harry James in 1939.
Taking in other great names such as Louis Jordan, Will Bradley, Benny Carter, Earl Hines. Lionel Hampton and Sidney Bechet and concluding with a track specially recorded for the CD by Johnny Parker as a tribute to Cow Cow Davenport “In Cow Cow’s Footsteps”, this set certainly does present the many faces of Boogie Woogie.
