CHAMPION JACK DUPREE "The Joe Davis Sessions" 1945-1946

Blues pianist Champion Jack Dupree took his New Orleans-born, boogie-woogie style north to Chicago and Indianapolis and gave it some blues backbone via meetings with Leroy Carr and Tampa Red. The first fruits of that education were his early '40s sides for Okeh, which are available on Columbia's New Orleans Barrelhouse Boogie. While his Okeh sides paired Dupree with a rhythm section, the reissue of his later recordings for the Joe Davis label, 45-46, feature him alone at the piano. The intimacy of the solo setting and the energy of his swaggering vocal delivery keep these sides engaging. Dupree supplies variety by way of subject matter that takes in domestic strife ("Outside Man"), politics ("F.D.R. Blues"), and drinking ("Rum Cola Blues"). For fans of both Champion Jack Dupree and the blues, 1945-46 is worth getting; you'll not only get some fine boogie-woogie blues, but also hear how Dupree influenced blues and rock & roll greats like Memphis Slim and Fats Domino.Stephen Cook, Allmusic
