Entertainment Reviews:

Dirty Linen - p.73
"[T]hese 10-tracks prove Vinson...is one of the greatest blues shouters around..."

"McShann, with his roots in earlier stride styles, was a sublime melodicist even at his bluesiest, and his contributions here are masterful."

Although its programming has been juggled a bit, and the CD has been given liner notes, this Delmark release is a straight reissue of the original LP. Clocking in at around 38 minutes, the relatively brief set is the only recording that exists of Vinson, pianist Jay McShann, and guitarist T-Bone Walker playing together; the sextet is rounded out by the fine tenor Hal Singer, bassist Jackie Sampson, and drummer Paul Gunther. Vinson, whether singing "Plese Send Me Somebody to Love," "Just a Dream," and "Juice Head Baby" or taking boppish alto solos, is the main star throughout this album (originally on Black & Blue), a date that helped launch Vinson's commercial comeback. ~ Scott Yanow
