There's really no particular reason why I'm posting this particular album other than that I was going through my crates of records, stumbled on this one, and realized I couldn't remember what it sounded like. So I took it out, put it on the turntable, and now here it is.



This could be called a 'jump blues' album but it's basically jam session and, like the Kansas City tradition where Joe Turner hails from, what you call it isn't really all that important. It's the groove and the swing and all these guys got plenty of it. Nat Hentoff provides nice liner notes, although he doesn't praise Red Holloway nearly enough, and doesn't even mention stalwart blues drummer Al Duncan. He also skirts around the fact that he had nothing to do with the session, wasn't there, and doesn't seem to have anything to say about the particular day in the studio when these two luminaries were brought together. Label head Norman Granz (of Jazz At The Philharmonic and Verve Records) apparently had Big Joe doing all kinds of 'duet' albums like this during his stint with Pablo, but this is the only one I have. In reality, they only sing *together* on the first side, where they trade off verses. The second is split evenly between the two of them.



 Hentoff, oddly enough, mentions being surprised by a rather disturbing line that Witherspoon sings in the impromptu "Blues Lament", but only because he hadn't heard it before, not because it was, well, really, REALLY not cool: "I'm going to take you to the dentist tomorrow morning, because I'm knockin' out all your teeth tonight." Dude... just not cool at all.



 Spoon sounds really at ease doing Jimmy Reed's "You Got Me Runnin'." Although both these guys were in the twilights of their careers at this point, I have to say that Witherspoon sounds in better form. He nails this, and the chestnut standard "I Want A Little Girl," which has become an unofficial anthem for pedophiles the world over. Big Joe is a lot of fun though. Kansas City On My Mind is a great slow-burner, but the kicker for me is "J.T.'s Blues". I'll also give $20 to anyone who can transcribe the lyrics to the first verse. I actually find myself cracking up laughing trying to figure out what the hell he's saying.



 Just for the hell if it, I've included a partial list of all the people who've recorded "I Want A Little Girl."
