Anderson Meade Lewis (September 4, 1905 – June 7, 1964), known as Meade Lux Lewis, was an American pianist and composer, noted for his playing in the boogie-woogie style. His best-known work, "Honky Tonk Train Blues, has been recorded by many artists. Lewis was born in Chicago, though some sources state Louisville, Kentucky, on September 4, 1905 (September 3 and 13 have also been cited as his date of birth in various sources). In his youth he was influenced by the pianist Jimmy Yancey

Of all the duets recorded by Meade Lux Lewis and Albert Ammons, the most exciting is a nearly-six-minute version of "Nagasaki" recorded on January 6 1939, the legendary "first day" of Blue Note Records.

Meade Anderson "Lux" Lewis (1905 - 1964) was a United States pianist and composer noted for his work in the Boogie Woogie style. His best known work, "Honky Tonk Train Blues" is considered one of the first rock and roll records, and has been recorded by many players, including Oscar Peterson and Keith Emerson.

A fascinating album from one of America's great piano geniuses. Also fascinating because there are several selections on here where he plays harpsichord or celeste. It's fun to hear boogie-woogie, stride-style CELESTE music. Very unusual and very cool. Meade Lux Lewis is one of the true masters and when you listen to these recordings, you'll understand why. Recommended.

About Meade "Lux" Lewis. After Albert Ammons, Lewis is probably the best-known musician associated with the late 1930s Boogie-Woogie piano revival. He actually made his first recordings in the 1920s, including the original version of his signature "Honky Tonk Train Blues. He continued to play off and on through the early '60s. Whether performing solo or in tandem with fellow pianists Ammons and Pete Johnson, his bionic left-hand rhythms were always a standout. He also played celeste and even harpsichord on a few occasions.
