More Info:

Jimmy Rushing is considered by many jazz critics and historians to be the greatest blues singer of his generation. From 1935 to the late 1940s he was the star vocalist with Count Basie and his Orchestra. The first 20 tracks of this compilation cover this period and include big hits such as, "Goin' To Chicago Blues", "Jimmy's Blues" and "Rusty Dusty Blues". Jimmy Rushing's powerful voice could hold it's own over the powerful riffing of horn sections in any big band setting and he went on to front other groups including Johnny Otis and Jimmy Mundy as the last 4 tracks of this set attest.
