Blues played by a brilliant pianist,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Junior's Blues (Audio CD)
Where have I been for fifty years? I knew the name, Junior Mance, of course, but only "discovered" him six months ago when I bought two CDs by Dizzy Gillespie, and found myself listening to the pianist rather than the leader. It was, of course, Junior Mance. So started my "exploration" of Mance. The AVID four album is a must have, but if you like the blues buy this album. Here Junior plays nine great blues tracks, many reinterpretations of well known blues such as "Blue Monk", "Yancey Special" and Ellington's "Creole Love Call". Accompanied to perfection by Bob Cranshaw and Mickey Roker this is a faultless performance. Buy, sit back and relax (and marvel)!
