Jimmy Blythe

(May 20th 1901 - June 14th 1931)

A pianist and composer originally from Louisville, Kentucky, who settled in Chicago around 1916 where he began studying under Clarence M. Jones. He was the director for a great many small group sessions throughout the 1920's and is credited with creating what is generally considered the first Boogie Woogie recording "Chicago Stomp" in 1924.

In 1931 while residing with his sister, Blythe contracted bacterial meningitis suddenly and died on June 14th at age thirty.
