Boogie Woogie & Barrelhouse Piano Vol 2 1928 - 1930

Various artists

Genres: Boogie Woogie Piano, Barrelhouse Piano, Blues Piano.
Informative booklet notes by Mike Rowe.
Detailed discography.
As with the Document Records CD St. Louis Barrelhouse Piano (DOCD-5104) very little is known of the pianists on this CD. Only Romeo Nelson, through two brief interviews, emerges from the shadows. He recorded with Tampa Red in 1929, played with Pine Top Smith and Clarence Lofton. Gettin' Dirty was a marvellous close cousin to the Dozens and another obvious rent-party piece. Dyin' Rider Blues, by contrast, was a macabre blues and 1129, a jaunty version, oddly, of The Midnight Special. Rudy Foster is known only through the few tracks here, which are heavy, inventive and typical of the boogies of the northern triangle of Chicago, Detroit, and Indianapolis. Piano Kid Edward's tracks provide a contrast with his explosion of ragtime and stride piano.
