Boogie Woogie - need advice

(Steve) #1

Good morning to the whole community!

I wanted to ask you, since I am approaching the world “Boogie Woogie” what can you recommend me?

Jools Holland is a big fan and plays it, so you could start there and find his influences.

Try this from Professor Longhair.

thank you so much

it is exactly the kind that I like, only if possible I look for something that feels better, let’s say more contemporary as audio.

As sound and recording quality: Hard Road Hoe - Ghost Towns Blues Band

Hugh Laurie does a great contemporary version of Tipitina here

The classic artists to start with are Pete Johnson, Albert Ammons and Meade Lux Lewis.

Perhaps it’s debatable whether Prof Longhair is “Bogie Woogie”. New Orleans piano is rhythmically a little different.
