A rare French TV gem from the Sixties featuring two greats: Joe Turner born in Baltimore, 3 Nov 1907 died in Montreuil, France, 21 July 1990 (not to be confused with his great blues singer namesake "Big" Joe Turner), a dazzling stride pianist who played with all the greats in Harlem during the Twenties, Louis Armstrong amongst them, and the great "Champion" Jack Dupree (1910 - 1992), the embodiment of of the New Orleans blues and boogie woogie pianist, a true barrelhouse "professor" and a great showman to boot as is amply evident. One can only marvel at the level of mass culture back then compared to now.Joe Turner plays:

Keeping out of the Grass
Cloud Fifteen
Carolina Shout
St. Louis Blues

Champion Jack Dupree plays:

The Woman I Love
Diggin' my potatoes
Chicken Baby
Pinetop's Boogie Woogie
