Detailed discography.

Well into the '60s, Arthur "Montana" Taylor and Henry "Freddie" Shayne, two Midwestern blues cum boogie pianists whose names were familiar from some "race" records, were rumoured to be still living around Cleveland and Chicago respectively. Paul Affeldt, editor of Jazz Report and producer of the Euphonic piano LP series, tried to locate them, obviously without success. Two decades earlier, architect and author Rudi Blesh was more fortunate and recorded Taylor and Shayne for his revivalist Circle label in Chicago. Two decades before that, both musicians had cut their first sides there for the one and only Mayo Williams (who was probably responsible for Shayne's 1935 session, too) after their recording potential had been spotted in St. Louis (Shayne, 1924) and Indianapolis (Taylor, 1929), two cities with strong piano traditions.
