Jimmy Yancey - Blues And Boogie mp3 album

To clear up any possible cause of confusion: although the front cover of this reissue reproduces the front sleeve of Jimmy Yancey's original Blues and Boogie LP, this CD actually combines two albums by two separate artists. One is Yancey's Blues and Boogie; the other is the less famous Freddie Mitchell's Boogie Bash (the spine and back cover do make it clear that the disc contains both of these records, with the booklet reproducing the front cover of Boogie Bash for good measure).

The album was released in the . in 1971 by RCA Records, and re-released in 1977 by Pickwick Records. It was compiled by Richard Robinson and originally included a piece by rock critic Richard Meltzer on the back cover

Blues And Boogie is a vintage set of piano blues and boogie playing from the Chicago-born Jimmy Yancey, who inspired Albert Ammons and many more with his distinctive playing style and cool arrangements. Freddie Mitchell's Boogie Bash album continues the keyboard theme featuring the precocious Florida-born pianist who moved to New York and became a respected session man with Ray Charles among others. Disc: 1. 1. Yancey Stomp. 2. State Street Special. 3. Tell 'Em About Me. 4. Five O'Clock Blues. 5. Yancey's Bugle Call. 6. Death Letter Blues.

Yancey was born in Chicago in (depending on the source) 1894, or 1898. His older brother, Alonzo Yancey (1894 – 1944) was also a pianist, while their father was a guitarist. Yancey started performing as a singer in traveling shows during his childhood.
