Sixth Avenue Express : Pete Johnson & Albert Ammons

Recorded and played 2 times by Eeco Rijken Rapp

Enjoy the video!

One of the most exciting Boogie woogie piano players was Pete Johnson.
He composed greatest solo numbers. This one is an inspiration coming from "Kaycee feeling" and my version as a tribute to this giant of Jazz piano.

This standard of Blues & Boogie piano played by Pete Johnson an many others is one of my favorite. it was played as well by Lionel Hampton orchestra.
And so we continue our odyssey into the complete 4 record 78rpm album set "8 To The Bar: Two Piano Boogie Woogie For Dancing" (recorded in May June, 1941) by Pete Johnson and Albert Ammons on Victor album P-69 with side 7: "Foot Pedal Boogie".

Some more easy walkin' - again, wish they'd miced the two pianos equally. ;)

Big Joe Turner - Vocals
Pete Johnson - Piano
Two key figures in the development of jazz. They got poor treatment. They were allowed on some of the top radio shows, such the 'Camel Caravan' with King of Swing, Benny Goodman, just as long as they did not speak.

Fabulous piano duet by Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson with Boogie Woogie Dream from 1944. The girl is a very young Lena Horne!
