Pinetop Perkins: Wee Wee Hours

Here is a better video of Daryl Davis warming up the ivories for Pinetop Perkins. Although the video says that Pinetop was late, I know from the experience of opening up for him, that he likes take his time getting up on stage to play. When you are 90 years old you can pretty much do whatever you want!!:-) When Pinetop was a spry 80 year old I had the pleasure of sitting in with the Soul Searchers while we waited for Pinetop to take my place. Pinetop sat in the audience for a couple of songs and after each one I looked at him and pointed to the piano, and he just smiled and pointed back! Finally after the third song he finally got up and strode to the piano and then lit into a boogie woogie that rocked the house!!!
