James P. Johnson, Backwater Blues

Welcome to Something Blue. I’m Hairy Larry and I’ve got the blues, for you.

James P. Johnson, Bleeding Heart Blues
James P. Johnson, Gut Stomp

All right now, that’s James P. Johnson, the father of stride piano playing “Gut Stomp”. Kicking us off he played “Backwater Blues” followed by “Bleeding Heart Blues”. Tonight I’m featuring jazz pianists playing the blues.

Something Blue is broadcast on KASU, 91.9 FM and streaming on the internet at http://kasu.org.

Thelonius Monk was influenced by James Johnson’s stride style as you can hear at the beginning of this next piece, “Bolivar Blues”. Then we will hear Oscar Peterson and Milt Jackson play “Satisfaction” and “Reunion Blues”.

Oscar Peterson, Red Top
Andrea Vergari, Massimo Frellicca, Lucio Giovannella, The Jody Grind

Now that’s what I’m talking about. the 08 Trio playing “The Jody Grind”. Before that we heard Oscar Peterson do “Red Top”. For over a century now jazz piano has always been based in the blues.
