THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

+ LAST WEEK’S PLAYLIST

 

 

BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 2/25/18
BLUES PIANO FROM SAMMY PRICE

+ THE MISSISSIPPI FLOOD OF 1927

This week on BBS we present Blues piano from Sammy Price. Sammy was originally out of Texas but made major career stops in Kansas City, Chicago and New York City. He was essentially a much-used house pianist for the Decca label during the late 1930s and throughout the 1940s. He made records under his own name and accompanied many of the vocalists on Decca including Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Helen Humes, Wee Bea Booze, Ollie Sheppard, Big Joe Turner and many, many more. Then we’ll present records documenting the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 – Kansas Joe McCoy, Charlie Patton, Barbeque Bob, Joe Pullum,  Casey Bill Weldon plus a dozen more check in with songs about the great water.

“It’s the sounds of Chicago and all points south each week on BBS!”
