"This is the 2nd of four CD's by the Document label which feature all of Ida Cox's early classic blues performances in chronological order. One of the many highlights of this CD are a classic rendition of "Chicago Mankey Man Blues." All of the CD's in this series are easily recommended to jazz and blues collectors as well as the novice listener. Cox's voice isn't dated like most singers from the 20's, she still communicates to today's listeners(like Bessie Smith). And the musicians are wonderful the best jazz musicians of the 20's like Henry "Red" Allen, Coleman Hawkins, Louis Armstrong, Sidney Beechet, all back her up on various CD's in the series. Highly recommended, though you may want to start with Volume one and work you're way through Volume Four.At least get Volume one, or two this is essential music for any serious jazz collector, and even for the novice."
