Roosevelt Sykes Vol 7 1941 - 1944
This CD begins with the balance of a notably high quality session held in February 1941 (also see DOCD-5121). Sykes' next session marked the end of his association with Decca, which had lasted from 1934 to 1941. It features some vintage piano from Sykes, with a typically elaborate right hand, and swinging drumming, thought to be by Sidney Catlett. All eight titles from Sykes' Columbia debut session were issued, on Okeh, Conqueror and Columbia itself. The only two released titles from his next two sessions, held before commercial recording came to a temporary halt in July 1942, are present along with three unissued sides are from the latter of the two sessions are also presented here. Once recording resumed, Roosevelt Sykes was naturally among the first to find his way back to the studios, making a four title session for Bluebird late in 1944. The quintessentially mid 40s set retains a compelling excitement, due in no small part to the obvious enjoyment of all concerned, but perhaps most of all to Roosevelt Sykes' unmistakable blend of infectious enthusiasm and impressive piano technique. He'd been a recording star for 15 years by this date, but there was still a lot of mileage in him.

Detailed discography.

From this album's booklet notes.
Prior to the recordings presented here Bill had worked with Georgia Tom Dorsey to produce one of the many successful guitar/piano combinations that were so popular in the wake of Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell, the latter being a man to whom Bill gave a lot of attention. They had worked with Jane Lucas and the results were nothing like the blues and stomps of Bill's first appearances in the recording studios. Following this he had formed an alliance with pianist Black Bob with whom he worked the clubs and recorded. Along with Bob he would join with a group of other humble toilers in the local entertainment industry to produce the State Street Boys. Continued...
