Rating 2.0 Rhythm & Blues Music Lover: from LE HAVRE, Seine-Maritime FR -- June, 5, 2005

This album is more for the R&B fan than for the jazz fan, despite the fact that some of the musicians (including the leader) have a distinguished Jazz career (Danny Turner was a long time member of the Count Basie Orchestra). This record is historically interesting more than anything else. Sound quality of the original recording is quite poor.
