Peter Steele

Great Musical and Historical Piano Jazz CD.
Here's an opportinity to hear some of the best examples of the early roots of jazz piano from ragtime to swing. Piano Wizzards features most of the greats. from the cat house melodies of Jelly Roll Morton, to the rolling boogie of Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson and Meade Lux Lewis, to the creativity of Fats Waller, and the swinging sophistication of Earl Hines, Art Tatum, and Duke Ellington. This CD covers the gamut of early piano jazz.

Special treats include "In a Mist," composed by trumpeter Bix Beiderbcke, and played by its composer accomanied by famed guitarist Eddie Lang. Jess Stacey, piano driver of Goodman's "Sing, Sing Sing," plays "Flashes/In the Dark" for one of his rare solos."

If you like early jazz piano, this is a don't miss.
