On The Record #10 - The Roger Williams Showcase


We must assume that it’s Roger Williams tickling the ivories on this record if only because the record doesn’t list credits and I’m far too lazy to look it up for you. Either way, the record is nice and mellow with a subdued orchestra backing the piano and (probably) Roger Williams tearing up and down the keyboard.

Listening to this will remind you of many Spike Jones records.

Ah, I broke. Looked it up. He was a pianist. Real name, Louis Jacob Weertz. Now you know!
