US boogie-woogie pianist and singer who was performing and recording by the age of 16 and maintained a successful career throughout his life. He developed a triplet style of playing which influenced later rock n roll pianists such as Fats Domino. Very cheeky on stage, he requested a peck on the cheek from the author of this site at a festival, a routine he can be seen repeating in the film footage below of one of his last performances. Below is also his first recording which was a local hit in Texas, the wonderful ‘Little Willie’s Boogie’.
