Boogie Woogie Walker represents a bold, new, artistic milestone in the career of Austrian boogie-woogie virtuoso Hannes Otahal. The CD containing 15 tracks performed on a magnificent Bösendorfer grand piano will take you on a musical journey through the world of boogie woogie and blues. This album includes absolutely convincing performances of boogie-woogie classics by Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson and Meade Lux Lewis as well as original compositions, in which the Austrian “Boogie Man” takes a completely new direction. In addition to the authentic character of his originals, you can also hear his jazz, Latin and even bluegrass influences which enriches and expands this music without falsifying the original style.
