Walter Roland – “Jookit Jookit” (mp3)

Walter Roland remains one of the blue’s most elusive and mysterious figures. Born in or around Birmingham AL, circa 1900. He first emerged on the city’s blues circuit during the 1920s already a skilled and versatile pianist whose repertoire ran the gamut from slow, gut-wrenching blues, to exuberant boogie-woogies. This mp3 is a testament to the boogie-woogie side of his playing.
