  • Here are 20 tracks of pure honking, shouting, bar walking, burning Kansas City blues and R&B from the great bandleaders of the late 1940s and early '50s. Big Jay McNeely, Joe Morris, Jay McShann, Buddy Banks, Eddie Chamblee and Cee Pee Johnson are here, just to name a few. The sound on this bad boy is more than adequate and the music is pure intense hedonism form a golden era in jazz that is not represented as well as it should be on compact disc. Acrobat does a fine job with sequencing, representation and track by track info. This is one not to miss. ~ Thom Jurek
