Steve Kuhn in Boston - the 1950's

from The Great Jazz Pianists: Speaking of Their Lives and Music, page 231:

What music were you listening to then? My father used to buy the seventy-eight [rpm] records of Benny Goodman. He'd also bring home records of the boogie-woogie pianists Meade Lux Lewis, Albert Ammons, and Pete Johnson. Duke Ellington records, too.
