The Boss of the Blues

ceefor

I have waited a long time for the jazz titles to be issued on CD. The second part of this issue may appeal to fans of Rock, but to me they are awful. However this is in my top 500 CDs.

They Say All Music Guide

During an era when Big Joe Turner recordings were often surprise hits with rock & roll fans (particularly “Shake, Rattle and Roll”), he occasionally recorded no-nonsense blues-oriented jazz dates too. This reissue album matched Turner for one of the last times with the veteran boogie-woogie pianist Pete Johnson and also includes a variety of top swing players: trumpeter Joe Newman, trombonist Lawrence Brown, altoist Pete Brown, tenor saxophonist Frank Wess, guitarist Freddie Green, bassist Walter Page, and drummer Cliff Leeman. It is not surprising, considering the number of Basie-ites on the date, that the band often sounds like a Count Basie combo. Turner is in top form on remakes of some of his early tunes (including “Cherry Red,” “Roll ‘Em Pete,” and “Wee Baby Blues”), a few traditional blues, and a couple of swing standards. This music should appeal to many listeners. – Scott Yanow
