Synopsis

Product Description
Blues and boogie-woogie pianist Mark Lincoln Braun (a.k.a. Mr. B) is a rare living link to the first generation of blues and boogie pianists. Steeped in the rich legacy of this tremendously exciting music, Mr. B learned directly from blues and boogie legends like Little Brother Montgomery, Boogie Woogie Red, and Blind John Davis. The Bird of Paradise Orchestra, now known as The Paul Keller Orchestra, has grown into one of the most active and acclaimed bands in Michigan, with a repertoire ranging from classic to the more experimental jazz charts. Here, B's compositions and favorites are fleshed out by the big band sound, and the BOPO moves towards a bluesier take on hard swing. This 2007 MEGAWAVE release is a remastered re-issue of the original Schoolkids Records recording.
