Jean DuShonMake Way For Jean DuShon ... LP
Argo, 1964. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the few rare albums cut by Chicago soul jazz singer Jean DuShon, an artist that Chess really tried to push in the mid 60s, but who never really seemed to make it.

Sarah Vaughan's most stripped-down session – a record that really does just have "plus 2" added to the lady's lovely vocals!

The jazzy vocals of Grady Tate get the Philly Soul treatment – as most of this album was recorded at Sigma Sound, with arrangements by Bobby Martin, and work by the usual MFSB players.
