Description
Back in the day when even juke joints had pianos (albeit battered), keyboard virtuosos like Roosevelt Sykes tickled the ivories until the break of day. This collection takes us up to the present, with éminences grises like New Orleans legend Dr. John ("Dog House Blues"). Other highlights include "Little Richard's Boogie," Sunnyland Slim's "Leaving Your Town," Willie Mabon's "I'm the Fixer," Champion Jack Dupree's "Walking the Blues," and Wynonie Harris's "Wynonie's Boogie."

"The piano actually played just as big a part [as the guitar] in the development of the blues as a commercial music in the 20th century. This set features some of the starts of the 88s from that era, including Roosevelt Sykes ('44 Blues'), Professor Longhair ('Boogie Woogie'), Memphis Slim ('Pigalle Love'), Otis Spann ('Must Have Been the Devil'), and Little Brother Montgomery ('Vicksburg Blues')."—All Music Guide
