Live at the 100 Clubby Don Ewell
The first ten selections of this 13-cut 1992 CD were previously put out on an LP by the 77 label. Don Ewell was one of the great stride pianists to emerge during the 1950s, and by the early '70s, he only had a few close competitors. Ewell at various times could sound like Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller, or Joe Sullivan, frequently mixing together elements of all three pianists in his own style. This set of piano solos finds Ewell in prime form, stretching out on such numbers as "If Dreams Come True," "Handful of Keys," "Aunt Hagar's Blues," and "Old Fashioned Love." Ewell is a player that all stride piano fans should be well acquainted with, and this CD is an excellent place to start.
