Tim Penn on Piano

Tim Penn's influences and repertoire range from ragtime and stride and the old blues songs of the 1920s, the New Orleans rhumba rhythms of Professor Longhair, a pinch of 50s/60s soul-jazz and some straight R&B from the likes of Ray Charles and Amos Milburn. Take all this, and then finally season with a sprinkling of his own songs, which reference styles such as Hoagy Carmichael at one moment and southern Swamp Rock or Bob Dylan the next, and the recipe is complete and ready.
