CD Reviews

The Boss Of The Blues
Ken Rogers | Easley, SC USA | 10/06/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a good showing of Big Joe's talent. Ahmet Ertegun and Jessie Stone put Big Joe to his best on songs like "Hide And Seek", "Boogie Woogie Country Girl", The Chicken and The Hawk" and Corrine, Corrina". The backing band is anchored by a strong backbeat and Jessie Stone's boogie piano with Big Al Sears and Sam "The Man" Taylor on some great sax solos. ATLANTIC felt they needed to put this on their JAZZ label, but if this music isn't rock'n roll I don't know what else you'd call it. THIS IS A MUST FOR EVERY LOVER OF JAZZ, ROCK'N ROLL AND JUMP BLUES. IT'S THE 1950's AGAIN AND BIG JOE IS ALIVE AND WELL!!!!!!"
Great 50's music
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD contains the most popular tracks by the legendary blues shouter, Big Joe Turner. The cuts are culled from Atlantic releases recorded between 1951 and 1958. Everything here is great 1950's sounding R&B music. If you really love the Joe Turner style, you might opt for the much more expensive box set and get 60 sides instead of the 21 in this CD."
