earl_hines-suaveEarl Kenneth Hines, known worldwide as Earl “Fatha” Hines, was a jazz pianist and bandleader. He has been recognized as one of the most influential figures in the development of jazz piano.

Hines was born on December 28, 1903, in Duquesne, Pennsylvania. His father played cornet in a local brass band, and young Hines briefly tried the instrument before learning to play piano at age 9.

He later turned his interest to jazz piano after three years of classical lessons, and by 15 he was leading his own trio. Hines was discovered by singer Lois Deppe, who helped the young pianist earn a job with Authur Rideout’s orchestra. He would later be joined Deppe’s Pittsburgh Serenaders, and make his recording debut with Deppe in 1922.

Hines became known for a “tricky” left hand that could play against time and deftly sway tempo. In 1923, he relocated to Chicago in 1923 began a tour with Carroll Dickerson’s orchestra and met an important friend and collaborator in Louis Armstrong.

He found work with the music director of the Louis Armstrong Stompers in 1927, and the two briefly owned a nightclub together.

In 1940, Hines scored a hit with one of his most popular songs, “Boogie Woogie on St. Louis Blues.” He also led a series of smaller groups after leaving Armstrong, primarily serving as leader of a Dixieland band in the 1950s. He delivered his final concert just weeks before his death from a heart attack in Oakland, California, on April 22, 1983.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem
    to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not
    sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But imagine if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and
    video clips, this website could definitely be one of the very best in its field.
    Superb blog!

    Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
