Due to popular demand, Mr. Boogie Woogie has released "Absoo-boogin'-lootly!" a 25 year retrospective of his favorite boogies recorded over the span of the Boogie Man's career. The CD contains tracks from his first release "Bluesin' and Cruisin' right through to the recent day. It also includes a special tribute to his mentor Rob Hoeke (1943-1999), a Dutch Boogie Woogie institution. This track called Down South (recorded by Rob Hoeke in 1964) and previously unreleased by Overbeek, was and still remains the most played Boogie on the Dutch radio. Internationally known pianist and recording artist Mr. Boogie Woogie aka Eric-Jan Overbeek (1967) was recently awarded the prestigious honor of being named Best European Blues Pianist by the Les Trophées France Blues. Overbeek who hails from the Netherlands began playing piano at the young age of 8 and got his first regular piano playing job at age 12. "Mr. Boogie Woogie comes straight from the Jerry Lee Lewis school of high-pressure playing. Except Mr. Woogie is lots faster. Add the hand-speed of Muhammad Ali to the forceful personality of The Killer and you've pretty much got the Boogie-meister.'.... Chuck Graham, Tucson Citizen 'It only takes about 30 seconds of listening to know this guy belongs in America's most energetic roadhouses seven nights a week.... Arizona Daily Star.
