============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH A TRIBUTE TO CAMILLE HOWARD ON SHOW #4544
The pre-Rock n' Roll era is full of unsung performers who's style directly impacted those who came after. This week's "Juke In The Back" spotlight on Camille Howard is one such example. Her boogie woogie piano style was inventive, fluid and pure joy. It left a lasting impression on Ike Turner, Fats Domino and Professor Longhair. Howard rose to fame as the pianist for Roy Milton & His Solid Senders in the mid-1940s. Their breakthrough smash, "R.M. Blues" featured her fantastic piano style and the public took notice. Soon, Art Rupe of Specialty Records had her releasing solo records under The Camille Howard Trio while she remained with Roy Milton. Matt The Cat will dig into Howard's best work with The Solid Senders as well as her solo material up through 1956, when she left music for good. Camille Howard, along with Hadda Brooks must be remembered as pioneering instrumentalists in the developing field of Rhythm & Blues, which of course led to the birth of Rock n' Roll. Camille Howard's star shines on this week's "Juke In The Back."
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons - Mercury 1947 2. R.M. Blues - Roy Milton & His Solid Senders - Juke Box 1946 3. Camille's Boogie - Roy Milton & His Solid Senders - Specialty 1947 4. Thrill Me - Roy Milton & His Solid Senders - Specialty 1947 5. X-Temporaneous Boogie - Camille Howard Trio - Specialty 1948 6. You Don't Love Me - Camille Howard Trio - Specialty 1948 7. The Mood I'm In - Camille Howard Trio - Specialty 1949 8. Fiesta In Old Mexico - Camille Howard Trio - Specialty 1949 9. O Sole Mio Boogie - Camille Howard Trio - Specialty 1950 10. Shrinking Up Fast - Camille Howard Trio - Specialty 1950 11. That's The One For Me - Roy Milton & His Solid Senders - Specialty 1950 12. Money Blues - Camille Howard & Her Boy Friends - Specialty 1951 13. GREAT 78 - I'm Blue - Camille Howard Trio - Specialty 1950 14. Excite Me Daddy - Camille Howard - Federal 1953 15. Are You Losing Your Mind - Camille Howard - Federal 1953 16. Business Woman - Camille Howard - Vee-Jay 1956 17. Mr. Fine - Roy Milton & His Solid Senders - Miltone 1947 - Camille on lead 18.

============================================ Rock-it Radio Program Webpage Reminder
Remember, if the show
that you want to hear is getting close to the bottom of the list of
radio shows, you should tune in as soon as you can. These shows to have a
high audio quality require a lot of internet bandwidth and memory. And
currently we can only afford the 25 latest shows online here at Rock-it
Radio. So, when a new show is put online it knocks the oldest one off
the Rock-it Radio archives page. Usually a show will at least last 16
to 20 days, once it is placed in the archives.
============================================ Come Join the Rock-it Listener's Club
