The Legends of the Rocking Dutchman - episode 127

Legends Mix

Today I'll show you what variety is - as easily I jump from a big band to a solo pianist, from a late fifties recording of a blues shouter to a 1929 song, from a noisy orchestrated song to the sophisticated blues of Charles Brown and from a dirty blues to a lighthearted song on the birthplace of Nellie Lutcher. The spectrum of pre-rock 'n roll African American music is enormous and yours to enjoy. You might even forget to wonder what that Texas pianist and that Detroit bluesman are fighting over the same woman.
