It is fortunate that Decca Records in London did recognize the talent, and her recording of Black and White Rag assured her place as a honky-tonk performer and good record sales. For the next decade she performed for concerts and TV, and also created some outstanding recordings.
Both included classical pieces on the grand as well as those from "her other piano," a honky-tonk upright. But the sales were best outside of the U. After sales lagged in the s, Winifred and her husband emigrated to Australia where she lived out her life. Again, in that country, she was a popular national treasure and gave performances through to Winifred Atwell is important in the overall ragtime legacy for not only adapting a music native to the U.
The fact remains that she could outplay most of the performers recording at the same time, and we do have that part of her legacy still available to us. Since his father was somewhat known as a dance band leader, Tiny had an edge with learning both the repertoire and the necessary protocols for performing in various venues.
They led to both recording and fame in the mids, including a stint on the Lawrence Welk television show from to While Lou Busch, Johnny Maddox and others were performing ragtime on records and seeing great success, Little was the first to play it nearly weekly on the popular growing medium of television, important at a time when there was little competition from competing shows two stations only in many markets and no cable or satellite.
He also acquired the "Big Tiny" nickname during that time, distinguishing him from his namesake father. During the s, Tiny spent time on many popular variety TV shows, touring at the same time. By the end of the decade he settled into what became his most popular venue, other than the later Lawrence Welk revival shows.
Slowly developing a finely-honed band, Tiny has been working in the casinos in Nevada to this day, alternating between Las Vegas, Carson City and Lake Tahoe. He continued to draw fans and make new ones into the 21st century.
He is also one of the only artist who had the tenacity and talent to adapt Christmas songs into ragtime format for a recording. Tiny brought friendliness, fun and familiarity to ragtime. He is just as enthusiastic about the musicians he works with as he is for the music, and plays all manner of styles, adapting to what the audience wants to hear.
His role in the s was to bring this music to an audience that may have spent less time buying records or listening to radio, perhaps spurring the sales of other artists in addition to his own. In spite of her parent's best efforts to encourage a direction towards classical music, the environment in Nashville, plus the early local programming on radio, convinced the young lady that she wanted to play piano in the honky-tonk style. Her dream goal was the Grand Present & Future (CD) Opry, something she would eventually realize in her early 30s.
Shortening her married name A del aide Hazel wood to something easier to remember and intentionally non-gender specificDel started banging around in bands and honky-tonk joints in her 20s. This led to the first of many recording sessions for the Tennessee label starting in Down Yonder soon became a national hit in both the Country and Pop categories in Billboard, and is considered to be the first million-selling record by a female artist. This success was turned into appearances on the Opry, which led to an eventual full-time gig with them in that fulfilled her dream, and two years later, a contract with RCA Victor Records.
While nothing else that she recorded had the same success as Down Yonder had, her offerings over the next decade were frequent and consistent. While the recordings after the late s were infrequent at best, her appearances on the Grand Ole Opry continued literally until just before her death in Wood was important in that she not only exemplified many of the possible connotations of the honky-tonk label, mixing country with pop music in an old-time piano style, but for the audiences she brought to both forms of music through her crossover pieces.
She also made it clear that a woman's place was. Her forceful playing was equal or superior to many of her contemporaries, and her considerable output showed great innovation at times, and consistency at the very least at all times. He spent much of his childhood focusing attention on ragtime and New Orleans' style jazz.
His brother Chester played trumpet, so there was some additional talent in the family. In his twenties he literally followed a traditional jazz band around the country, making friends with the piano player, and occasionally sharing the seat. Gordy eventually became a fine rhythm player in both jazz and country bands of the s to mids, working at hotels and even for high school dances, where there was work. He also played on a few recordings, many of which he did not receive credit so we can only guess about them.
When Jim Bulleit founded his progressive Nashville label Bullet Present & Future (CD) inGordy came along for the ride as a session pianist for future famed artists such as Chet Atkins and Homer and Jethro possibly including some WSM Grand Ole Opry broadcasts, since that was they studio they usedand was based in Nashville for the rest of his life.
From late toJohn recorded twelve sides for Bullet that would be among the last for that label. He became known as "Poppa" John during this period, and his signature Salty Dog Rag was soon covered by many country artists. Then for a time, Del Wood held the Nashville spotlight. At the urging of Atkins, Gordy, Wood and other artists migrated to RCA Victor in andonce RCA set up a high tech studio in Nashville to supplant the antiquated and inadequate studios that existed up to that point in the Music City.
A number of his sides with his quintet or sextet depending on the date were integrated into a LP, and he recorded a second LP in A final compilation was released some time after his death in It should be noted that for Present & Future (CD) limited fame as a very competent musician, his son, John Gordy Jr.
Poppa John's style was an important link between the down home Nashville style and the more sophisticated near-jazz arrangements of Lou Busch, and like other artists such as Marvin Ash or Paul Linglehe was woefully under-recorded. Hia father was a classical pianist of note, so it was natural that Fritz took up piano at the age of six. But in spite of his father's best efforts, within a couple of years the boy was emulating and integrating the popular music styles of the coming jazz age into his classical performances in a unique way - keeping rhythm with the right hand while playing melodically with the left.
When he finally became a jazz performer in his twenties, Honky Tonk Women - The Artist (Formerly Known As Prince) - Past was in the vein of Victor Borge, integrating jazz and popular music using humorous improvisations or classical quotations.
