I only just came across this thread. I got rained out so had a chance to investigate The FOG. When I got down to @joraft
comment about Fast Boogie, I was transported back to a time long before i was even 38. My brother and i had been dropped of at my uncle's farm for a couple of weeks while my own folks sorted out a few of their own problems. The aunt and uncle were the types who could never say "NO" to anybody who needed to drop of any kid, or two, or three, or....... no matter how long or brief the stay might be. My brother and I were a part of the family for 5-1/2 years. During our stay, there were many others who became "a part of the family" as well. One very lttle boy whose mom and dad were students at Juliard stayed for a couple of years. My aunt and uncle both played piano. The aunt also played the violin. Others in the famiy were all very musicaly inclined and it was a common occurrance for the entire family to gather around the piano for a good old fashioned sing along. My uncle was a big and very powerful man with huge hands. He played at several local clubs during summer turist season. At the end of the season, the owners had to put new ivories on the keyboard. His hands were so big and powerful, he often sent ivories flying as he banged away. But even tho he never learned to read music, his music was very entertaining.
The Juliard dad was studying very classical and opera type music. His play was perfection and he could play by reading the music or just pick up by ear. He was a tiny man, barley over five feet tall. He was very near sighted and wore very thick glasses. Any time we got together around the piano, the two men would end a session with a duet of Bumble Boogie. My uncle would play the base and rhythm part. He would sit staight up, almost leaning backwards. He could be a real banger type of player. The student would play the high notes and the melody. He was, as mentioned, a tiny man. He would play his part to perfection scrunched over with his nose almost touching the keyboard he was so close. The music was out of this world, but it was almost as entertaining to watch the two men with their differing styles. Even tho they were of totally different disciplines in their music, those two could really meld in together.
Even tho I don't have much to add to all of the great music mentioned here thru out this thread, that duet of Bumble Boogie has to be my all time favorite.
