CD Reviews

Good but not essential
B. D. Tutt | London, UK. | 10/13/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Louisiana born blues pianist Eurreal "Little Brother" Montgomery is featured on tracks 1 -11 as an accompanist. Tracks 7 - 11 date from his classic 1936 New Orleans session where he recorded 23 tunes in one sitting.Tracks 12 - 15 are 1947 Chicago band pieces featuring New Orleans trumpeter Lee Collins.Tracks 16 - 24 are solo recordings from the Savoy and Windin' Ball labels from 1949 - 1954. If not as good as his pre-war recordings, they feature Montgomery's take on some classic blues and boogie themes. "Cow Cow Blues" is a magnificent performance.This album has some good performances which collectors will want to obtain. For those wanting a single disc by Montgomery, the 1930-36 Complete Recordings disc, also from Document, is the one to get."
