Artist Portrait

Johnny Maddox

p, *1927 US, Gallatin, Tennessee
Musician of Jazz

American ragtime pianist and collector of ragtime memorabilia, born August 4, 1927 in Gallatin, Tennessee; died 27 November 2018. For Dixieland Blues, bandleader and pianist Johnny Maddox determined to play Dixieland-style arrangements of obscure songs that he knew from the original sheet music, including some that had never been previously given a Dixieland treatment. At the head of an eight-piece band (which also included another piano player), Maddox played revivalistically reverent, if lively music that likely sounded very much like early New Orleans Dixieland jazz did in the early 1900s.
