Format: Paperback
The transcriptions of some of the greatest barrelhouse and blues pianists such as Jelly Roll Morton, Meade Lux Lewis, Memphis Slim, along with their history are in this music book.
There is also a tantalizing CD of samples of the pieces in the book as played by the great blues pianists. This gives essential information as to how the syncopation and rubato sounds in the hands of the masters. The only problem is that as the snippet gets going, you really want to hear the entire piece and whammo! It's only a few seconds per piece, 12 minutes in all. Why oh why couldn't they put at least a few complete works on the CD?
Other than that quibble, this is a great book for blues piano, though greats such as Roosevelt Sykes are to be found in a companion volume, not in this one.
A must for blues lovers who play keyboard.

A fantastic book. It gives you history, transcriptions and tips. It's not a great method book though, so between this and a good blues method book you can learn a lot about blues piano. You need to get recordings of the transciptions though to really get the feel for the differnt styles, and really understand the subtleties of the rythms that the notation really cannot fully show. Its fun to just listen and look through the transcriptions at times. I've tried playing as close as I can to the recordings then once the feel is there used it as a springboard for my own explorations. This book helps you both learn the music and appreciate it more.

I cut my teeth on this book, I bought it in the Spring of 1981 and bored the heck out of my parents, wife and then children learning classics like Peetie Wheatstraw stomp and Honky Tonk Train.
Recently I just bought another piano and I've picked the book up again.
If you want to play classic boogie and blues piano then you must have this book!
Does it still come with a floppy vinyl record?

I am thrilled with this book/sheet music. They took the time to include a CD of the original piano players/writers playing about 20 seconds of each tune. I'm new to playing bookie piano, so I need to hear it as well as read it. Not to mention, it's fun to get a sense of the history involved in this style.

Some of the blues type music I bought is incredibly hard to play, the timing, the speed of the required movements, the huge number of flats and sharps, the complex chords make it difficult. This book has playable music... and it sounds good, even if one doesn't play it necessarily at top speed. There is a lot of material in this book, I've been working an hour every day for a couple of months, and I'm not even half way through. Good stuff. I'm feeling that I'm starting to develop my own boogie style, and improvize too. Heads up -- this is excellent book.
