Smokey Joe's Piano

In my opinion, Smokey Joe Baugh was one of the most fascinating musicians at Sun Records. He not only recorded solo but was some kind of a session man and had a style on most of his recodngs you can clearly identify. I started this project possibly a year or so ago but never finished it. I included not only his solo recordings, also some of his recordings as a backup piano player are featured here. I also can recommend you listening to his work with Brad Suggs, Eddie Carroll, Warren Smith, and others. He was one of the greatest!

Smokey Joe was a fascinating figure and languishes in obscurity. His cover of "The Signifying Monkey" is a classic.
