About the Album

“Gypsy Blues” is the first track on pianist Ehud Asherie's new solo CD, "Shuffle Along," a recording devoted to songs from the 1921 musical of the same name. Here Asherie turns venerable compositions by Eubie Blake and Noble Sissle into new, sprightly improvisations. The show “Shuffle Along,” with an all-Black cast, was revolutionary – it can be seen as the beginning of Black Broadway.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
