Format: Audio CD
Charles Thompson was a contemporary of Jelly Roll Morton and James P. Johnson, and was one of the leading figues of the second generation of St. Louis ragtime pianists.
This album, made up of live recordings from the early 1960s, finds Thompson in reasonable form, playing some of his best known pieces plus a few standards. His powers had declined a little from his 1948-49 American Music recordings, but he was still able to play in an entertaining fashion. Many of the performances are rather short, but these are historic recordings by a little known but important figue in ragtime.
Delmark is to be commended for this release: let's hope they re-issue the rest of the Euphonic back catalogue. Anyone interested in ragtime and early jazz should consider buying this CD.

It's like opening a time capsule...Thompson is not only "neglected", but he also belongs to a neglected stage between Ragtime and Jazz. He claims James P. Johnson as a major influence, but his style is actually older than James P.'s. In a Blindfold Test, I would have guessed Luckey Roberts, although Thompson doesn't possess Luckey's technical mastery. But they share that kind of literal dotted - rhythm time feel. And at their stage of the game, only certain aspects of Jazz practice had entered into their work. Interestingly, Boogie bass can be found, but bluesy inflections cannot. The triplet can be found, but the underlying 3/4 pulse cannot.
And the constant rhythmic and gestural morphing that is one of Early Jazz's greatest contributions to the world is not present, as it is in both Johnson and Jelly Roll Morton (the only people who think those two Masters are "Ragtime pianists" are people who aren't able to perceive the effect of CONSTANT improvisational thinking in their playing).
Even the repertoire is fascinating: Ragtime classics, early Boogies, Pop tunes that found their way into Early Jazz. And Vaudeville tunes that didn't ( Joe Jordan's Brother-In-Law Dan - one of this set's high points). Oh, and another reading of The Dream! This is a whole story in itself...
Is this "great" piano playing? No, it's not, but it is an invaluable document. Anything which complicates the transition from Ragtime to Jazz is precious to me. Thank you Delmark!
