    Leroy Carr was such an influential blues musician, really shaping the sound of piano blue specifically, but blues and soul generally far into the 1960s. He died young and died hard. He was a prolific recorder, and thank goodness for that! These 16 sides alone came only within the span of a year. Scrapper Blackwell deserves credit at least on the front cover, as he was an integral part to Carr's sound. But we can't diminish that not only Carr's piano playing but his vocals as well were so influential. And yet he's a name not that much known outside of blues circles. Everyone (rightly) identifies Robert Johnson as the "King of The Blues". Well, if you want to hear what Johnson was listening to before he made his own recordings, any compilation of Leroy Carr will do.
