About This Post

Charlie Wood presents The Piano Professors, a freewheeling romp through the history of American popular music. Featuring classic songs by legendary singer/pianists like Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller, Memphis Slim, Professor Longhair and many others. The Piano Professors traces the evolution of Jazz, Blues, R&B and Rock & Roll through the work of these keyboard giants, starting from their earliest beginnings in New Orleans and the deep South, working their way up the Mississippi River to Memphis, St. Louis, out to Kansas City, Chicago, New York and beyond.

Veteran singer/songwriter and piano man Charlie Wood cut his teeth gigging with New Orleans soul/funk diva Charmaine Neville and touring the US and Europe with blues guitar legend Albert King before settling into a long nightly residency at King’s Palace on Beale Street in his native Memphis, TN. Now based in the UK, Charlie keeps a busy schedule of touring & recording dates, both under his own name and with his wife, British jazz icon Jacqui Dankworth.
