Ben Waters • Boogie 4 Stu, a Tribute to Ian Stewart



Review by William Ruhlmann
In Life, his 2010 autobiography, Keith Richards makes clear that boogie-woogie pianist Ian Stewart was the organizing principle in the Rolling Stones, calling the first audition/rehearsal that led to the formation of the band, even though, when the group was offered a recording contract, he was shunted aside as an unnecessary sixth member who didn't look the part. (Amazingly, the self-effacing Stewart agreed to continue to play on their records and serve as their road manager.) Ben Waters pays tribute to "Stu" on this album largely given over to boogie-woogie, and he has enlisted a star-filled set of guests including Stones members Richards, Mick Jagger (who sings and plays harmonica on a cover of Bob Dylan's "Watching the River Flow"), Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Ronnie Wood, as well as other notable musicians such as PJ Harvey and Jools Holland. The result is an album Stewart no doubt would have liked better than any of the Rolling Stones albums he played on.

 En vida, su autobiografía de 2010, Keith Richards deja claro que el pianista de boogie-woogie Ian Stewart fue el principio organizador de los Rolling Stones, llamando a la primera audición / ensayo que llevó a la formación de la banda, a pesar de que, cuando se ofrece el grupo un contrato de grabación, fue desviada a un lado como un sexto miembro innecesaria que no parecía la pieza. (Sorprendentemente, el modesto Stewart acordó continuar para jugar en sus registros y servir como su road manager.) Ben Aguas rinde homenaje a "Stu" en este álbum en gran parte dedicada al boogie-woogie, y él ha alistado un Star- conjunto lleno de invitados, entre ellos Piedras miembros Richards, Mick Jagger (que canta y toca la armónica en una cubierta de Bob Dylan de "Watching the River Flow"), Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, y Ronnie Wood, así como otros músicos notables como PJ Harvey y Jools Holland. El resultado es un álbum Stewart sin duda le hubiera gustado mejor que cualquiera de los álbumes de los Rolling Stones.
