Saturday Night Fish Fry . . . Honey Hush!

"The Motherlode of Jump Blues. I know Louis Jordan pioneered the sound, but he, along with many others, pales in comparison to Cleanhead. If this stuff doesn't make you want to shout and shake your money maker, then Jack, you dead! I've got tons of recordings of the masters of swinging blues, but Cleanhead always comes out on top. I definitely agree with the reviewer who would rather hear one note from Cleanhead's alto than anything, or everything, of Charlie Parker's stuff. Not only a tremendous player, but, IMHO, the greatest Jump/Swing singer. His signature high-pitched squeal at the end of vocal lines imitates the honking "R & B" sax sound - fantastic! Makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I wish Cleanhead's "Dream" of sittin' in the President's rockin' chair were true. Would be a vast improvement! Ole' Kidney Stew is definitely more than fine!"
Big band Cleanhead

"Great chance to hear Eddie Vinson backed by a big band made up of ex-Basie men. They swing hard too. Cleanhead is in fine voice(wasn't he always?) on some of his old blues favorites and some jazz songs. His "ain't necessarily so" is wonderful. A must have for any fan of R&B and swing blues."
