The First Pianist
of Modern Jazz


This recording was produced in Chicago on February 12th 1928 featuring Earl Hines piano.

*"Fifty-Seven Varieties" was composed by Earl Hines.

In 1928 after a brief stint with Louis Armstrong's band, Earl Hines recorded his first eleven piano solos.

Marked by independent use of the left and right hand his playing differed greatly from that of pianist like Jelly Roll Morton who had set the standard. Unlike his contemporaries Earl's playing contained what were though of as strange accents and rhythmic patterns creating an expressive new style that was trurely ahead of its time.
