Montana Taylor/Cripple Clarence Lofton – Low Down Piano – Archive of Jazz Volume 15 (BYG 529 065)

Barrelhouse boogie-woogie piano courtesy Folkestone’s Age UK by little-known, highly skilled practitioners from the first half of the last century on eccentric French re-issue imprint; bit more city-fied than the titular Low Down suggests, as I would say. Taylor sings of a world gone bad on these 1946 Chicago sides, taped after a few years lay off from music. Cripple (!) Clarence shows he’s the more flamboyant of the two on the second side’s Windy City recordings from 1939.

More mood specific music for the Asbo libarry.
