"Joe Turner made some great jump blues records in the thirties, forties and fifties, but I have always felt that his jazzy blues outings on Pablo Records in the seventies and eighties were even better...Turner gets to stretch his performances, the musicians are allowed to jam on and on, and everybody seem to be cool and comfortable. Listen to "Rocks In My Bed" for a taste of how good a simple blues can get! This album must not be confused with the similarly-titled album of hits from the forties, which, however, is also a gem. To understand Turner in his later years, try the album with Roy Eldridge, Milt Jackson and PeeWee Crayton ("Nobody In Mind"), as well as the wonderful album reviewed here..."
