Many sides here are later-career efforts, so the sound is quite good. CD comes with excellent liner LP). Johnson received little acclaim in his lifetime, although he was known and admired by fellow musicians. Johnson invented the Harlem-stride style later emulated by Fats Waller. The difference though, as Waller was the first to admit, was Johnson was best at it.
Waller used to lament that he didn't have as quick a left hand, and that's really what stride is all about. Until he was almost 40, Jellly Roll Morton played LP) piano in various midwest and southern US cities. Fame came well into middle age, with his late s Hot Peppers group.
Morton was always controversial, a horn-blowing self-promoter, and spent as much effort on his image as his music. He had many critics, but was undeniably a great composer and musician. Earl "Fatha" Hines developed his own style of playing left-hand counter melodies along with right-hand rapid arpeggios and octave melodies.
Considered the first modern jazz pianist, he inspired many who followed him.

I do believe if you could only have one album by Willie Nelson you couldn't make a better choice for that one album then the soundtrack to "Honeysuckle Rose".
The movie itself is a fairly decent one starring Willie Nelson as a married country music singer from Texas who becomes involved in a romance with one of his backup singers.
The roll Willie plays here isn't any stretch of the imagination. I am sure there is at least a little bit of reality in the part he plays that might mirror Willie's personal life. Dont get me wrong. This isn't some great piece of celluloid art here but it still is an enjoyable story. If you have the chance to see Honeysuckie Rose - Various - A Jazz Piano Anthology From Ragtime To Free Jazz (Vinyl sometime do make the effort to watch "Honeysuckle Rose".
But my review isn't about the movie. My review is about the soundtrack album from "Honeysuckle". The very best thing to come from the movie is all the live music Willie plays here with his band and some friends invited to perform during the concert segments.
This is not a studio recording of songs played during the film. It is the actual live concerts Willie and friends were recorded playing during the filming. As a result you get the feeling of what it is like to see and hear Willie Nelson perform live. What makes it even better is the songs by Willie is like listening to a greatest hits record. All around this is a well produced album that rates as one of my favorite albums from the country music genre. I highly recommend it. If this sounds like a record you would want to have in your music library let me give you a tip on a great deal being offered at Amazon.
That is a savings of I took that offer from Amazon so now have the album both on CD and on my phone to listen to anytime I please. I really do recomend this soundtrack. I am sure you will enjoy what you hear on here. The late 80's brought a change to country music.
In my opinion, country music was turned into wimpy rock, with cutesy funny clever lyrics, like the one about where the guy's wife took the keys to his truck but she forgot about his John Deere.
One album I vaguely remembered was the soundtrack to "Honeysuckle Rose. I just recently bought this CD and after several listens believe that this is what great country music sounds like live.
