Alex Opatrny & Axel Zwingenberger

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:
- Boogie Woogie Be With Me
- Jump And Jive
- April Mood
- Blues For Sippie Wallace
- Sunset Special
- Eldorado Stomp
- In The Heat
- Make Me Call California
- My Style
- Blues On Top
- Boogie Du Printemps
- Goodnight Blues
