Raw, rootsy blues – recorded by a trio of gals who are definitely old enough to have taught your mom a few songs! The set's got a mixed blues/
jazz vibe – that sweet 20s/
30s mode when the two genres would often blur nicely together – and players include Sidney De Paris on tuba, JC Higginbotham on trombone, Buster Bailey on clarinet, Cliff Jackson on piano, Henry Goodwin on trumpet, Cecil Scott on clarinet, and Willie The Lion Smith on piano. Singers alternate tracks on the set – and titles include Albert Hunter
singing "I Got Myself A Workin Man" and "I Got A Mind To Ramble", Lucille Hegamin
singing "St Louis Blues" and "You'll Want My Love", and Victoria Spivey
singing "Black Snake Blues" and "Got The Blues So Bad".
