James P. Johnson, born in 1894, is credited as the "father of stride piano." Johnson approached the keyboard with powerful, recurrent, octave-spanning, left-hand innovations and rhythmic and harmonic intensities that became acknowledged influences on many of the jazz performers who followed him. Johnson wrote his first major Broadway musical, "Runnin' Wild," in 1923.
