LP Artwork: Five Feet of Soul/Jimmy Rushing

The blues shouter who made his name during his famous stint with Count Basie and His Orchestra from 1935 to 1948.

Basie felt that Rushing's blues vocals "never had an equal" even though Rushing felt he was really a ballad singer.  Later, he said, "I don't know what kind of blues singer you'd call me. I just sing 'em!"

This week's program includes a track from this album which I think is arguably his very best, and the band featured players such as Al Cohn, Snooky Young and Zoot Sims.
