Let Us Now Praise Pine Top Smith, Pianist Extraordinaire

Post by Corlyss_D » Sun Jun 11, 2006 4:04 pm

Pine Top invented boogie woogie. Born this day in 1904. When Tommy Dorsey got ahold of his eponymous Pine Top Boogie Woogie and turned it into a big band instrumental, it became one of the biggest selling records of all time.

If any of our jazz loving members have Boogie Woogie and the Barrelhouse Piano, Vol. 1, cudja PM me?
