Bass Goin’ Crazy

Albert Ammons

1939 recording

This piano solo was recorded by Albert Ammons in New York City in 1939.

Boogie woogie master Albert Ammons lets his signature bass runs fly for the performance of a frenzied piano original.

Ammons began working with fellow boogie piano man Meade Lux Lewis with whom he appeared on record for Blue Note that year. They first became acquainted at John H. Hammond’s From Spirituals to Swing concert held December 23, 1938 at New York’s Carnegie Hall
