Booker T. Laury was born in Memphis in 1914, and is a monster of ì a piano player. His style at times recalls Memphis Slim--this ì isn't surprising, since they were lifelong friends. Slim left ì Memphis and urged Booker to do the same, but Booker chose to stay ì and work the juke joints along Beale Street, something he does to ì this day. Now in his eighties, this is his U.S. recording debut. ì All of Booker's songs are in the classic barrelhouse tradition.
