Review

Review Text Although Arkansas shouter Jimmy Witherspoon had a long and varied career, the essential components of his style (which combined a smooth, jazz phrasing with a harder blues edge) were well in place in the late '40s when the recordings on this collection were made. Working predominately at this time with Jay McShann and his orchestra, Witherspoon brings a late-night crooner's sensibility to these jump blues numbers, making several of them his own, including his trademark two-part version of "Ain't Nobody's Business," recorded in 1949. There are many who feel that these sessions were the strongest 'Spoon ever did, but casual listeners should definitely sample his work from subsequent eras, as well, since Witherspoon was wonderfully unafraid to experiment with many different possible shadings of the blues. ~ Steve Leggett
