Columbia & Victor Piano Boogie Woogie & Blues
« on: September 27, 2007, 06:29:13 PM »
The great Mosaic reissue label will be releasing a piano and boogie-woogie 3CD-set. The set is scheduled for a January 2008 release.

From their "Future Projects" page

Columbia and Victor Piano Boogie Woogie and Blues (3 CDs)
75 tracks from the Columbia and Victor catalogs of classic boogie woogie and blues piano from the rich period of 1935 to 1941. The sessions include piano solos, duets and trios to small group recordings and feature a range of diverse artists including Albert Ammons, Meade Lux Lewis, Pete Johnson, Freddie Slack, Teddy Wilson, Lionel Hampton, Kenny Kersey and Mary Lou Williams. The blues piano sides mostly feature the unique stylings of pianist and vocalist Jimmy Yancey with over a dozen Victor tracks. The rest of the set dovetails nicely with a slew of sides by vocalist Joe Turner who is accompanied by Pete Johnson, two all star bands led by Benny Carter and Joe Sullivan. Rounding out the set are rare sessions by one of Chicago?s great bluesmen, Cripple Clarence Lofton.

Back in the days when Mosaic produced limited edition, numbered LP box sets I always made a point of ordering blues related ones; not only was the sound superb but the entire artefact an absolute treat...but they sure as hell weren't cheap!
