Dorothy Donegan: Pandemonium



Pianist Dorothy Donegan was born in Chicago circa 1922, and is primarily recognized for playing the boogie-woogie style of jazz, as well as being the protoge of, and successor to, Art Tatum. Known as a jazz pianist, her classical background and eclectic musical taste helped create an impressive and flamboyant live act that had the ability to engross any audience. Honed in Chicago's vibrant music scene, her act consisted of her splendid blend of jazz styles infused with pop, classical, ragtime, gospel, and vaudeville, among numerous other genres. Her irresistable charm, vicious sense of humor, spunky attitude, and daring musical prowess all played a roll in her individual persona and career.
Presented here are two shows recorded for television.
