Rock My Soul (Take 1)
"Kansas City" Frank
(as Broadway Rastus)
This solo was recorded in Chicago during March of 1929 featuring Frank Melrose at the piano,
accompanied by unknown drums & speech.
This record and a number of others were produced in 1929 by Frank's brother Lester Melrose
and released under the pseudonym "Broadway Rastus".
*"Rock My Soul" was composed by Frank Melrose.
A fluttering intro gives way to this heavy stomp with floating figures that continue to develop thematically throughout giving the piece a thoroughly thought-provoking appeal. -"Oh Sweet mama pass the jug!"
