Big Joe Turner: Two Classic Albums Plus Other 1945-47 Singles (The Boss Of The Blues / Joe Turner & Pete Johnson) (2CD)

Ref: AMSC1142

(UK Postage Free )


AVID Jazz presents two classic Joe Turner albums plus, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
“The Boss of the Blues”; “Joe Turner & Pete Johnson”; plus 10 Alternate takes from “The Boss of the Blues”, Newport 1958 performances with the Newport (all star) Blues Band and other Joe Turner & Pete Johnson singles from 1945-47.
Some quotes from the original liner notes:- “One of the most durable of the great blues shouters is Joe Turner”. “Joe Turner is one of the few artists who have managed with consummate success to bridge the ever widening gap between jazz and what was once called race and is now known as rhythm and blues”. “Of all the performers in the R&B category, he is among the very small minority to have earned the interest and respect of the cognoscenti who take their jazz seriously.” “Pete Johnson, Joe’s partner on some of these numbers is also a native of Kansas City…..he made records with Harry James…..and for several years teamed up with Albert Ammons in a two piano act”. “Pete’s authoritative, vigorous style in the boogie woogie piano idiom earned him recognition as one of the three top exponents of the eight –to- the- bar art, along with Albert Ammons and Meade Lux Lewis”.
Both albums plus have been digitally re-mastered
