Al V. (Al) from HOOVER, AL

Post war blues lady. Recorded in 1974 Montreux Jazz Fest. Backed by all-stars. Great performance.
There's a reason she replaced Holiday in Basie's 1939 band.

"I shall forever remember being backstage with Helen Humes the last time she ever sang in public, just months before her death in 1981. She sang "If I Could Be With You One Hour Tonight," and Bill Basie fell in love with her all over again. There she stood with her "joy boys," all of Basie's top artists and one would never have known that she was fighting the battle of her life and was soon to give in to cancer. Her voice was just as clear and strong as you'll find it here. Helen Humes is a national treasure and if you put this in your shopping cart, you will truly have been a treasure hunter. Enjoy."
