Boogie Woogie – Piano Solo

Alex Opatrny & Axel Zwingenberger
144 pages

  € 20.00 at Azel Zwingenberger’s website

Let me start off by saying that this book is an absolute must for all boogie woogie players. Axel Zwingenberger is arguably the most talented boogie woogie player out there and discovering he has issued a sheet music book is like Michael Jackson begging you to teach you the Moonwalk. Or something like that.

The 12 pieces in this book, varying from slow and relatively easy blues ones to wild boogie woogie tunes, are original transcriptions from a live album by Zwingenberger titled Boogie Woogie Live. It took Alex Opatrny “several months” to capture Zwingenberger’s unique style and put it on paper.

In this sheet music book you will find the following tunes:

  1. Boogie Woogie Be With Me
  2. Jump And Jive
  3. April Mood
  4. Blues For Sippie Wallace
  5. Sunset Special
  6. Eldorado Stomp
  7. In The Heat
  8. Make Me Call California
  9. My Style
  10. Blues On Top
  11. Boogie Du Printemps
  12. Goodnight Blues

    Great Music: so how do I get Boogie Woogie – Piano Solo and the CD. I have tried to access the site listed for Azel Zwingenberger’s. But by the time you go through the cost, exchange rates and postage it costs $70. Is there someplace here in the states that has it?

    Axel Zwingenberger’s sheet music is unfortunately only for sale on his website, and can not be bought anywhere else. I have a spare copy here at home if you are interested. Mail me at
