Info for St. Louis Blues (Remastered)



Universally regarded as one of the supreme keyboard masters of the swing era, Teddy Wilson refined the stride piano tradition established by James P. Johnson and Fats Waller and introduced qualities of elegance, delicacy and finesse that earned him wide-spread acclaim and a great number of imitators

Whitney Balliett, one of America’s most distinguished jazz writers, produced a fine appreciation of Teddy Wilson in one of his New York Times columns in 1972 when he wrote: “Teddy Wilson is a marvel and we must not take him for granted”. He went on to describe Wilson’s “feathery arpeggios, the easy, floating left hand, the impeccable rhythmic sense, the intense clusters of notes that believe the cool mask he wear when he plays”.

The playing of Teddy Wilson on this album totally endorses writer Otis Ferguson’s evaluation when he said that Wilson’s improvisations are “so clear and lasting, so eternally unpredictable yet easy and right, that they rise above the common accepted habits of the medium and the time” (Mike Hennessey)
