Great foot tapping, easy swinging Jazz.

Willie Humphrey: New Orleans Clarinet





A very pleasant trip to the world of New Orleans jazz. This one has the balance of instrumental and vocal tunes tipped in favour of the vocal and is always foot tapping good!

Looks nice!
As for me, I am looking for a good disc/compilation of Pete Johnson’s Boogie Woogie piano works.

There is wonderfully tight delivery of the music here. A fine album.

Nina Simone: My Baby Just Cares For Me





Besides the wonderful vocals from Simone there is some really wonderful piano playing on this album including two solo piano tracks. It is a very fine album overall.

I think she is a Juliard-graduate pianist. However, just like Ron Carter, she knew that she wouldn’t be hired by an orchestra. So she looked for club gigs and one club owner told her that she would be hired if she sings. She was active in the Civil Rights movement, blacklisted by the FBI, and lost most of live/club gigs. Her “In the Dark” is my fav among her songs.
