The ABC and D Of Boogie Woogie - Live in Paris CD Review

Written by General Jabbo

Charlie Watts is known the world over as the legendary drummer of the Rolling Stones, currently celebrating their 50th anniversary. What many people do not know is that his first love is jazz and he has an affinity for the nearly forgotten boogie woogie. Fortunately for music fans, he has managed to team with like-minded musicians, who also happen to be virtuosos on their respective instruments to form the A, B, C & D of Boogie Woogie. Named for the initials of its members, the band is made up of Axel Zwingenberger on piano, Ben Waters on piano and vocals, Watts on drums and Dave Green on bass.

In September 2010, they were captured live at the Duc Des Lombards jazz club in Paris, the results of which make up their debut album, The A, B, C & D Of Boogie Woogie – Live In Paris.
