Description by OLDIES.com:

Ivory Joe Hunter (his real name) was one of the first R&B artist to sell equally well to whites and blacks. His smooth vocal style often brings to mind another black artist who sold to a crossover audience in the 1940s and 1950s, Nat "King" Cole. The tracks compiled for this collection include those recorded at his first session for King (September, 1947) through his last (August, 1949). After leaving King, Hunter recorded for MGM, Atlantic and a handful of smaller labels between 1950 and the late 1960s. In the early 1970's, Hunter signed with Columbia's Epic subsidiary to pursue his interest in country & western music.

The King Sides, Vol. 1 features 25 tracks recorded during Ivory Joe Hunter's brief tenure with the Cincinnati-based King label from 1948-1949. While most are familiar with Hunter's smooth ballads like "Since I Met You Baby" recorded for Atlantic in the mid-'50s, these songs find Ivory Joe singing and playing piano on swinging midtempo jump tunes that spotlight several members of Duke Ellington's Orchestra, including Tyree Glenn, Johnny Hodges, Russell Procope, Harold Baker, Ray Nance, Oscar Pettiford, and Sonny Greer. This affordable set is highly recommended alongside Since I Met You Baby: The Best of Ivory Joe Hunter on Razor & Tie. ~ Al Campbell
