He had a left hand like God. He didn't know what key he was playing in, but he played them all. He could play the ragtime stride bass, but it bothered him because his stomach got in the way of his arm, so he used a walking bass instead. I can remember when I was thirteen - this was 1896 - how Turk would play one note with his right hand and at the same time four with his left. We called it 'sixteen' - they called it boogie-woogie - Eubie Blake remembering William Turk, from Giles Oakley's The Devil's Music, BBC

It was a great show last night. Albanie played the first set, accompanied by Lauryn Gould on washboard and sax and Lauryn's husband Ryan on bass. Steve played the second set and was stellar as always.

Here are links to Albanie's, Lauryn's and Ryan's websites:

As Lindy mentioned, the concert was at the Hillman City Collaboratory and organized (for lack of a better word) by The Rhapsody Project.

A little while ago we were discussing how to make more young people aware of and engaged in the music we love. The people at The Rhapsody Project and The Hillman City Collaboratory appear to have found a way.
