      ump Blue: Rockin' The Jukes CD
      by Blue Note's The Blue series.
    Our Price: Backorder CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    1999 must have been deemed a banner year for the blues by someone at Capitol Records, issuing a passel of eclectic blues compilations in a month-long period on the EMD/Blue Note label. Jump Blue is a scholarly homage to the jump subgenre, characterized by sped-up high-hat tempos and lots of tight, fast horn work. This record jumps, too, all over the blues map of time and location, encompassing the vocal stylings of Dave Bartholomew ("Jump Children"), Helen Humes ("He May Be Your Man"), Peppermint Harris ("I Got Loaded," covered in 1984 by Los Lobos) and T-Bone Walker ("Teenage Baby"). Possibly the most eyebrow-raising cover: "A Fool in Love" by Ike and Tina Turner, recorded at the peak of their scorching funk career, certainly not known at the time for their contributions as ministers of jump blues. Other cool keepers from this disc series (which include a hearty helping of jazz and blues/jazz synthetics): Afro Blue, Blue Bacharach, Rhapsody in Blue, Blue So Funk and a half-dozen more. ~ Becky Byrkit

    Jump Blue features music by Big 'T' Tyler, Illinois Jacquet, Jo Jo Adams, Amos Milburn, T Bone Walker, Floyd Dixon, Dave Bartholomew and more. EMI.


      Women, Whiskey And Fish Tails CD - Import
      by Wynonie Harris
    Our Price: $16.65 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    WOMEN, WHISKEY AND FISH TAILS features 21 previously unreleased tracks Harris recorded for the King label in the late 1940's.

    Personnel: Wynonie Harris (vocals, drums); Bill Johnson, Clarence Kenner, Kenny Burrell, Les Spann, Mickey Baker (guitar); Hilton Jefferson (alto saxophone); Maxwell Lucas (tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone); David Bubba Brooks, Robert Darby, Fred Clark , Lowell Hastings, Rufus Gore, Hal Singer, Wesley Brooks, David Van Dyke, Red Prysock (tenor saxophone); Walter Hiles, Leslie Johnakins (baritone saxophone); Frank Humphries, Tommy Purkson (trumpet); Cornelius Tate (trombone); Eddie Smith , Kelly Owens, Sir Charles Thompson, Sonny Thompson (piano); Gordon "Specs" Powell, Rossiere "Shadow" Wilson, Isaac Cole, Steve Boswell, Edison Gore, Calvin Shields, Bill Warren, Philip Paul (snare drum).

    Recording information: Cincinnati, OH (11/07/1952-07/17/1957); Fulton Studio, New York, NY (11/07/1952-07/17/1957).

    Ace's Women, Whiskey & Fish Tails spotlights some of the famous blues-shouter's latter-day work (1952-1957) for independent R&B label King. Now joined by Ace's '50s-centric Harris survey, Lovin' Machine, this 21-track disc takes the somewhat more obscure path through the catalog, substituting the still-electric likes of "Greyhound" and "Drinkin' Sherry Wine" for chart hit "Bloodshot Eyes" and the classic alcoholism narrative "Drinkin' Blues." Far from just an artist in repose, though, Harris is in top form for most of it, especially on the gospel-infused "The Deacon Don't Like It" and collection standout "Shake That Thing." The Ace titles are best left to listeners looking for a second roundup, while newcomers probably will want to first check out survey discs on Rhino or the chronologically minded Classics label for more of Harris' essential early hits and sides ("Good Rockin' Tonight"). ~ Stephen Cook

    Mighty Mighty Man! is a nother British import that really delivers the rocking goods. This time zeroing in on Brown's 1953-59 King sides exclusively, the 22-cut CD shows that Brown actually picked up his tempos to meet rock's rise head on. The clever sequel "Ain't No Rocking No More," "Black Diamond," "Gal from Kokomo," and "Shake 'Em Up Baby" rate with his hottest rockers, with great support from a crew of Crescent City stalwarts. ~ Bill Dahl
    Recorded between 1953 & 1959. Includes liner notes by John Broven.


      Jumpin' At The Mardi Gras CD - Import
      by Joe Lutcher
    Our Price: $16.85 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    The First Ever Appearence On CD Of Joe Lutcher's Recordings Including 14 Previously Unreleased Sides Including 10 Songs that Have Never Been Heard.

    Personnel includes: Joe Lutcher (vocals, alto saxophone); Bump Meyers.
    Recorded in the late 1940's and 1950's. This is quite a comprehensive collection (25 tracks) for a relatively minor early R&B performer. However, it shouldn't be considered a best-of as it only covers his stint with Modern in the late '40s and early '50s, not including any of his Capitol and Specialty material, and thus omitting the R&B hits "Shuffle Woogie" and "The Rockin' Boogie" (although "Mardi Gras" is here). In fact, only nine of the numbers (both sides of four 1949-1950 singles, plus a song that didn't come out until a 1983 Ace compilation) were previously released; the remaining two-thirds are previously unissued outtakes and alternates. Like many of the musicians recording in L.A. in the late '40s (including many of the ones doing Modern sessions), Lutcher was at the pivot in the transition between jazz, jump blues, and R&B that was vital to the birth of rock'n'roll.

    As such pioneering saxophonists go, Lutcher was a little more traditional than most, at times sounding like a link between older New Orleans jazz and R&B. On other sides, such as the 1949 single "Ojai," he's closer to the big band mood of Dizzy Gillespie or even Benny Goodman than he is to R&B and pre-rock'n'roll. What history will most remember his Modern stint for, however, are the cuts with a Mardi Gras influence (particularly in the rhythms), which stand as some of the first tracks ever recorded to bear an identifiably New Orleans R&B stamp.
    "Mardi Gras" itself, which was done before Professor Longhair's more famous version, is certainly the most galvanizing of those. Otherwise the disc is an energetic but somewhat samey-sounding hybrid of jump R&B, jazz, and the occasional New Orleans flavor, encompassing vocals (including two songs with an unidentified female vocalist) and instrumentals. ~ Richie Unterberger


      Swinging The Blues CD - Import
      by Gene Phillips
    Our Price: $16.85 CD
    Usually ships in 1-2 days
    This 25-song compilation doesn't contain exact recording dates, but it can be safely assumed that most or all of this was cut between 1947-1951; about half appeared on singles from that period, while some showed up on a 1963 Crown album (although they were obviously done much earlier), and others weren't released until Ace LP collections in the 1980s. (There's also a previously unissued "Happy Birthday," cut for Modern's Jules Bihari's birthday.) Regardless of the specifics, it's early jump blues from the stage at which it was in transition from jazz to R&B, leaning in some cases closer to jazz than R&B. That may be why Phillips was pretty much a forgotten case by the mid-'50s.

    This remains decent, historically important early jump blues by an unheralded early pioneer of the electric guitar, as you can hear when he gets the chance to stretch out on numbers like "Slippin' & Slidin'" and "Gene Jumps the Blues. " It's also notable for being some of the first material to bear the stamp of the Modern house sound, although musically it's a little more restrained and less bluesy than some of the Modern acts who would follow. Lyrically, though, Phillips was often quite ribald, as song titles like "Big Fat Mama," "Snuff Dripping Mama," "Fatso," and "Short Haired Ugly Woman" let you know before you even tear off the shrink-wrap. That kind of politically incorrect view of women hasn't aged wonderfully. You do wonder how Phillips and Modern thought they were going to get away with "Punkin' Head Woman," with lines sung to sound very much like "f*ckin' head mama."

    The collection has surprisingly clear and vibrant sound quality, considering the age of the sources. ~ Richie Unterberger
    25 tracks highlight the talents of one of the Modern label's early stars, guitarist Gene Phillips - a jump blues specialist, heavily influenced by T-Bone Walker, his songs were often ribald, and often dwelt on the subject of ladies with a fuller figure -
