Venerable New Orleans pianist Tuts Washington didn't get many chances to record during his lifetime. This 1983 session, now available on CD, was his most extensive project, with 23 songs covering everything from spirituals to traditional jazz numbers, pop pieces, novelty tunes, blues, and country. Washington played them all in a seamless manner, displaying the mix of boogie-woogie and barrelhouse riffs, R&B, blues, and gospel elements, Afro-Latin and Caribbean rhythmic accents, and jazz phrasing and licks mastered through many decades of playing in bars and clubs. This was his chance in the spotlight, and Washington didn't waste it.
Great solo piano!
Too bad you can't get the whole CD like me, but it's better than nothing, so quit yer belly-achin! Much more intersting and varied than your standard blues/boogie/stride piano music. If you like Professor Longhair, you should like this.
Born: January 24, 1907 in New Orleans, LA
