We had an old Victrola with the old bulldog they used to have there. The horn would come out.
I had listened to Joe Turner. When they'd book Joe there, I'd play the blues behind him.
It was my first time in Kansas City. In about two or three days I had a gig at a place called The Monroe Inn.
We used to play the Savoy Ballroom, and we always had a boogie tune in the set. Bands like Tommy Dorsey used to do a little boogie woogie. The big bands.
My family was a Christian family. But I had to get to Kansas to play the blues.
