LP Artwork: Cat Meets Chick & Five Feet of Soul

The album Jimmy Rushing, Ada Moore and Buck Clayton's band recorded in 1955. Whilst I became a Big Joe Turner fan on a first hearing, it took me longer to appreciate the wonderful Mr Rushing.

This is a great record but my personal favourite of his has to be Five Feet of Soul. The sessions , in January 1963, found him in top-notch company with a band packed with Basie alumni.
