Synopsis

Album Description
Big Joe Turner created his own flavor of the blues. He took the shouting with a strong piano accompaniment element of the Kansas City style of the blues and blended it with a more "down home" approach to singing. Backed by the likes of Coleman Hawkins and Jim Hall, highlights on these two original Atlantic albums include "Until The Real Thing Comes Along," "Don't You Cry" and "Pennies From Heaven."
 

CD Reviews

Another 50's masterpiece
rick from Boston | 07/08/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Big Joe does it again with his second album of Kansas City jazz & blues. Featuring Coleman Hawkins on sax, the album falls a little short of his "boss of the blues" triumph, possibly because of the abscence of Pete Johnson. Still, he lets loose with an extended version of Rebecca which gives you an idea what he must have sounded like back in the late 30's, early 40's when he would stretch songs out for quite a while."
