As long as I'm posting a Winehouse song, let me add this one which is a tutorial on how to take a pop song and convert into a jazz ballad.
Johnson was much more than Berry‘s piano player, both to his career and his music. Pretty well known that Berry used piano keys, not typical guitar ones, for his famous riffs, those riffs came from Johnson. Johnson was a gentle, unassuming man and his lawsuit to get co-writing credits for many of Berry’s hits came way late and was dismissed. Check out Johnson’s work with Keith Richards, great stuff. In fact, many believe Richards prodded Johnson to file his suit, it was that obvious to him the input Johnson had on Berry’s songs.Johnny Johnson, Chuck Berry's long time piano player, with his own boogie solo. Johnson is in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as a sideman. Listen to his keyboards on You Never Can Tell.
