Champion Jack Dupree: Champion Jack Dupree - Rocks (CD)

1-CD DigiPac (6-plated) with 36-page booklet, 29 tracks, playing time 78:14 minutes.

• Multi-label compilation features Dupree classics originally on the Red Robin, Groove,Apollo, Vik, and Atlantic labels—all of them blistering rockers 
• Jack’s all-star sidemen include guitarists Brownie McGhee, his brother ‘Stick’ McGhee, and Larry Dale and sax blasters Sam ‘The Man’ Taylor, King Curtis, and Pete Brown
• Dupree’s hybrid of New Orleans R&B and New York blues was singular
• No other Dupree collection encompasses so many vintage labels
• In-depth liner notes by compiler Bill Dahl cover the entirety of Dupree’s spectacular career as a pioneering blues and barrelhouse pianist
• Rare photos and illustrations in the booklet.


Champion Jack Dupree came by his pugilistic moniker naturally. Before the New Orleans-born piano pounder became a blues legend, he was a prolific prizefighter. But Dupree’s legacy resides not standing in the ring but sitting at the ivories. Over the course of an incredible career that stretched across more than half a century, Jack did an amazing amount of recording - and a whole lot of rocking. 

Dupree laid down a slew of barrelhouse boogies and floor-rattling rocking blues during the postwar era, and Bear Family’s ‘Champion Jack Dupree Rocks’ brings together an impressive array of his greatest rafter-rattlers, With non-stop Dupree stormers including Shake Baby Shake, Shim Sham Shammy, and Nasty Boogie, this disc rocks from beginning to end!

(Robinson-Robinson)

Red Robin 130

 

Ever since he first surfaced on OKeh in 1940 (his '41 platter Junker Blues was the direct precedent for Fats Domino's The Fat Man nearly a decade later), New Orleans native Champion Jack Dupree had been attacking the ivories with a ferocity that anticipated rock 'n' roll.

On 1953's Shim Sham Shimmy, cut for Bobby and Danny Robinson's New York-based Red Robin imprint, his thundering boogie was abetted by Brownie McGhee's crashing, distorted lead guitar (Brownie's brother Stick was also on board, along with bassist Bob Harris and drummer Willie Jones). Dupree was introducing a new dance that had been around forever, yelling lyrics with barrelhouse-tested glee.

Born William Thomas Dupree on July 4, 1910 (or one of several other dates he cited over the years), he spent a lot of his childhood in the New Orleans Home for Colored Waifs (an establishment Louis Armstrong also knew well). He learned to play piano in part from watching local 88s aces Drive 'Em Down and Tuts Washington. Dupree headed north in the early '30s, earning his 'Champion Jack' moniker as a prizefighter. He commenced recording in Chicago for the ubiquitous Lester Melrose on OKeh, then served as a cook in the Navy during World War II (he was a Japanese POW for two years). 

Back stateside after the war, Dupree settled into the postwar New York scene and was much in demand as a recording entity, judging from the volume of his postwar discography (labels included Joe Davis, Continental, Lenox, Alert, Apollo, Abbey, Apex, Gotham, Derby, King, and Harlem). Thanks to McGhee's blazing electric axe, Jack's three Red Robin singles hit as hard as anything he did during this nomadic period. Dupree settled into a stable relationship with King Records later in '53, then RCA's Groove and Vik subsidiaries in 1956-57. The piano man made a seminal LP for Atlantic in '58, 'Blues From The Gutter,' then bid the U.S. adieu for the welcoming shores of Europe, where he thrived for the next three decades.

Dupree finally returned to New Orleans to perform at the 1990 'Jazz & Heritage Festival' and make a CD for Bullseye Blues. He was diagnosed with cancer the next year and died in his adopted hometown of Hannover, Germany on January 21, 1992.

Press and Reviews
Press Archive - Champion Jack Dupree - Rocks - Vintage Rock
Press Archive - Champion Jack Dupree - Rocks - Vintage Rock The last of the Barrelhouse piano pounders, Champion Jack ventured into uptempo rock'n'roll on a fairly regular basis in his long career, and now the compilers at this German label have isolated the rockers from the straight blues and boogie to superb effect. There's the obvious, like Shake Baby Shake, and Shim Sham Shimmy, and plenty of similar material that equals those to attract jivers to the dancefloor. Jack always attacked a song with unequalled vibrancy, and this is yet one more excellent collection to add to his legacy.

Press Archive - Champion Jack Dupree - Rocks - AllMusic The entries in Bear Family's ongoing Rocks series spotlight the hardest-rocking moments in an artist's catalog, sometimes offering a counter-narrative to an established narrative. In the case of Champion Jack Dupree, the hard-driving New Orleans blues and R&B pianist, his Rocks provides an introduction to his career that wasn't otherwise available when this was released in 2018.
