Charlie Wood presents The Piano Professors, a freewheeling
romp through the history of American popular music. Featuring classic songs by
legendary singer/pianists like Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller, Memphis Slim,
Professor Longhair and many others. The Piano Professors traces the evolution
of Jazz, Blues, R&B and Rock & Roll through the work of these keyboard
giants, starting from their earliest beginnings in New Orleans and the deep
South, working their way up the Mississippi River to Memphis, St. Louis, out to
Kansas City, Chicago, New York and beyond.

Veteran singer/songwriter and piano man Charlie Wood cut his
teeth gigging with New Orleans soul/funk diva Charmaine Neville and touring the
US and Europe with blues guitar legend Albert King before settling into a long
nightly residency at King’s Palace on Beale Street in his native Memphis, TN.
Now based in the UK, Charlie keeps a busy schedule of touring & recording
dates, both under his own name and with his wife, British jazz icon Jacqui
Dankworth.
