Blues For Joel - Count Basie, Joe Turner*, Eddie ;CleanHead; Vinson - Kansas City Shout (Vinyl, LP)


  1. One of Joe Williams' standout classics from the 50s – just the sort of record that put him on top of his game at the time! The album's one of Joe's classic outings with Count Basie – one recorded for Roulette with a slightly looser, slightly rawer feel than their work together on Verve. Joe's rendition of "Everyday I Have The Blues" is a near-definitive one – tight.
  2. Joined by a great, musically like-minded but very flexible group, Joe creates some classical blues and jazz blues, Kansas City style, with the more modern contributors coming down to the basics (basiecs) of the blues. Turner is great, but he is probably partly inspired by great solos and accompaniememnt by none other than Harry Sweets Edison /5(11).
  3. Count Basie's always had plenty of blues roots in his music – but this sweet vocal session with Joe Williams pushes that quality even further – by featuring a selection of tunes from Big Bill Broonzy, Leroy Carr, Ivory Joe Hunter, and other legendary blues talents! The sound is maybe a bit more laidback than usual for Basie on Roulette – often with the Count's piano kind of.

  9. AllMusic awarded the album 5 stars stating "Joe Williams' debut as the featured vocalist in Count Basie's band was one of those landmark moments that even savvy observers don't fully appreciate when it occurs, then realize years later how momentous an event they witnessed. Williams brought a different presence to the great Basie orchestra than the one Jimmy Rushing provided; he couldn't shout.
