Liner Note Author: Al Fichera.
First released in 1961, this collection of jazz standards features the great jazz and blues vocalist Jimmy Witherspoon in a variety big band arrangements, ranging from Duke Ellington's "Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me" and "I'm Beginning to See the Light" to a wry version "Don't Worry 'Bout Me," famously recorded by Frank Sinatra. World-weary but unbowed, Witherspoon invests these songs with his unique, bluesy style, creating his own inimitable magic.
