18. Albert Ammons and Meade "Lux" Lewis - The First Day
When I first got into jazz via the Columbia Jazz Club (I may not have the name exactly right, but they would send you several jazz CDs each month), one of my favorites was Erroll Garner's "Concert by the Sea." The boogie-woogie in this 1939 album reminded me a lot of that.
Fun fact I learned from the 1000 Recordings book - this was the first album released on the amazing Blue Note label. Great rollicking energy in this album...
