This episode your host Allison Wilson hangs out with pre-war blues piano buff Ethan Leinwand. The music of St. Louis brought him here, and he works to preserve, spread, and dig deeper into this somewhat obscure category of tunes. Well, it might be obscure in other parts of the country, but St. Louis has a long memory when it comes to our musical heritage.
You can find Ethan tickling the ivories all over town--at Yaquis on Cherokee, The Gramophone in the Grove, at Schlafly Bottleworks (and elsewhere) playing with his two-man band The Bottlesnakes, accompanying Miss Jubilee and more. Check out his website, ethanleinwand.com, to see when and where he's playing and to purchase his album, The Low-Down Piano.
