Product Description:

Earl "Fatha" Hines is in typically great form on this 1960 release with guitarist Calvin Newborn (brother of pianist Phineas Newborn, Jr.), bassist Carl Pruitt, and drummer William English. The music is very familiar to most of the pianist's fans, although the inclusion of a guitarist on "Saint Louis Blues Boogie Woogie" (better known under the more familiar title "Boogie Woogie on the St. Louis Blues") and its relative brevity (instead of the typically three-plus minute right-hand tremolo that Hines often favored in later years) make it sound rather fresh compared to the pianist's many other recordings of it. Hines' treatment of "Tea for Two" begins as a lively waltz until it breaks loose into daredevil swing. His friendly vocal is a highlight of "I Can't Believe That You're in Love With Me." He also includes a rousing take of one of his best-known compositions, "Rosetta," as well as singing his easygoing "You Can Depend on Me." This long unavailable LP will be fairly difficult to find. ~ Ken Dryden
