CD Reviews

Soaring Blues and Boogie-Woogie piano music
Gilles Benjamin | Montréal, CANADA | 11/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The music of Pete Johnson really stood the test of time. His playing has a warmth that is still enjoyable today. This compilation reflects the genius of that Blues and Boogie-Woogie piano master. The presence of Big Joe Turner on six of the twenty cuts is a gift. There's also six excellent piano solos. Count Basie idolized Pete Johnson and Fats Waller for their piano playing. This is a highly recommendable CD of Kansas City brand of Blues."
