Editorial Reviews

Here are some of the rarest hot piano solos ever made. These performances were originally recorded in Chicago during the mid to late 1920s by the Capitol Music Roll Company and issued as nickelodeon piano rolls. In 2007 Delmark issued Jimmy Blythe, Messin' Around Blues from the same set of rolls. With the help of digital technology these rolls will sound more full and rich than ever before. This CD feature rolls transcribed by Clarence Johnson, another of the finest blues players of the 20s. The piano roll performances presented here provide a clearer record than do their 78s because these solos were recorded using modern recording techniques from a 'live' player piano.

Format: Audio CD
Enhanced piano rolls from 1920s played on modern instrument produce delightful sounds that sound like they were recorded yesterday. Johnson never recorded on 78s, only these pianola rolls that provide an extensive introduction to his sound and style.Especially good concluding selections 18,19,20 almost reach 5 minutes-- amazing for the period. A real treat for lovers of stride, ragtime, early blues.
