Today I want to post about Paul Williams.

Paul Williams had been marketed by Teddy Reig.

Teddy Reig produced  Paul’s “The Hucklebuck”.

Soon after it entered Billboard’s R&B chart in February 1949, the strutting honky-tonk blues reached No. 1, and it remained on the charts for 32 weeks.

The Hucklebuck” was influenced by Charlie Parker’s “Now’s the Time”.

Teddy Reig said:

“The Hucklebuck” was influenced by Charlie Parker’s “Now’s the Time”.

“Hucklebuck” wasn’t just a rip-off of “Now’s the Time.”

“The one was jazz, the other was rock and roll, and we were hungry.”
