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

Roy Book Binder in Concert
« on: September 14, 2004, 09:18:31 PM »
I saw Roy last Saturday night at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland.  First off I've seen Roy 11 times including having him as a teacher at The Furpeace Ranch.

It was an early show with someone coming on after him so his show would be shorter.  Roy did very little talking and a whole lot of playing.  If you've ever seen him you'll understand what a surprise it was.  He really spread out on his songs using a lot of extra licks and just having a good time.  He played a bunch of songs that I've never heard him play before and he didn't play his standards like Rag Mama.

It was a great show.  I minidisked it and boy am I glad I did.
