Product Description

Product Description

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.

Format: Audio CD
This is track for track a reissue of Avid's 1996 release "The Many Faces Of Boogie Woogie", but whereas that provided a detailed note and full discographical details, this carries the bare minimum of information. That detracts from an otherwise excellent compilation, which cast the net wide to include more than just the obvious choices. So Georgia White's "Alley Boogie" (recently heard introducing "Love Soup" on TV) is here, as well as Montana Taylor, Speckled Red, and Romeo Nelson. That's before considering the many instrumental boogie tracks, which inject variety into what might otherwise have been a somewhat monochrome experience. So it is a considerable bargain, and if it appeals then you should ignore my reservation and seek it out.

With dozens of boogie woogie collections on the market the best one is the Proper Box which includes a booklet with dates and more info on one page than this Avid twofer covers on its entire sleeve.
Not that it matters that much today as you can find as much as you want on Wikipedia including the fact that the unnamed girl singer on track 1 is actually Anita O'Day and that Johnny Parker was the piano man on Humphrey Lyttleton's Bad Penny Blues

I do love listening to original recording and this certainly is that. The volume comes out a little quiet, but there's no denying its authenticity. I was hoping for something a little heavier in the piano section - a la Jools Holland. This is a bit too Jazzy for me. I love Original Blues but this is much lighter and faster than that. It's certainly listenable and great for the price.
