Throw the sand and slide.....nice easy going baseline. Defy you not to smile at this.

About the Album

“Gypsy Blues” is the first track on pianist Ehud Asherie's new solo CD, "Shuffle Along," a recording devoted to songs from the 1921 musical of the same name. Here Asherie turns venerable compositions by Eubie Blake and Noble Sissle into new, sprightly improvisations. The show “Shuffle Along,” with an all-Black cast, was revolutionary – it can be seen as the beginning of Black Broadway.
