Albert Ammons

Pianist Albert Ammons was the king of boogie-woogie, a bluesy jazz style that swept the United States, and then the world, from the late 1930s into the mid-1940s. Although his origins were modest, his powerful piano style would take him from Chicago barrooms to Carnegie Hall to the White House. As a soloist and in duets, Ammons's propulsive style gave life to classics like “Boogie Woogie Stomp” and “Pinetop's Boogie Woogie.” Albert Ammons was one of the big three of late-'30s boogie-woogie, along with Pete Johnson and Meade Lux Lewis.
