Product Description:

In his decades-spanning career, singer Jimmy Witherspoon has blurred the divisions between jazz and blues. He has swung with jazz saxophonists such as Ben Webster and wailed with the blistering contemporary blues guitar of Robben Ford. The recordings that make up RIGHT ON DOWN were originally done for the Modern label in the early 1950s. Focusing chiefly on the jumpier styles of blues and R&B (that eventually paved the way for rock & roll), RIGHT ON DOWN also includes some creamy balladry and even a rare detour into gospel. As usual, the U.K.'s Ace label's presentation has wonderful sound quality and informed liner notes.
