This album features the Bluesy Jazz of Jimmy Rushing. Jimmy was more on the Jazz side than his contemporary, Big Joe Turner, who was more of a Rhythm & Blues singer, though the distinctions often become unclear when listening to the huge amount of records they recorded. While Big Joe had a rougher voice more suited to shouting, Jimmy Rushing also had a powerful voice, but much better suited to romancing women, and with a clear diction that Turner didn't have. Every song on this album is excellent; "See See Rider" and "Sent For You Yesterday" are personal favorites. The material on this record is culled from three studio albums. The liner notes make extensive mention of the great John Hammond, and his immense talent for discovering musicians and singers. This disc suits me very well, because I'm not a huge fan of Jazz that isn't in the New Orleans/1920s/early '30s tradition. The musicians on this album don't venture into Bebop territory, which is perfect for me. Instead, their music is what I can only label as Bluesy Jazz. The three discs from which the material on this album comes to us were recorded at a time when Miles Davis and Coltrane were all the rage, from what I understand of Jazz history. I have never been a huge fan of either one of those artists, thus it's a good thing that the musicians who played on this album stuck to an older, more direct style of playing Jazz. This album is romantic, fun, will have you stomping your feet, and features vocals from one of the greatest singers in history. If you enjoy this album, I highly suggest the early work of Jimmy Witherspoon and Big Joe Turner.
