Meade “Lux” Lewis was one of the leading boogie woogie pianists of the 1930s. His best-known recording “Honky Tonk Train Blues,” was also his first recording–for Paramount in 1927. He frequently performed with two other pianists, Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson. He appeared uncreditted in the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” as the pianist in Nick’s bar.
