Champion Jack Dupree - 4 cd boxset (JSP)


"...his early 1940s recordings for OKeh with guitarist Bill Gaither and string bassist Ransom Knowling, a clutch of 1942 sides with Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, two sides made for Asch in 1944, his solo work on JD and the 1945 sides with Brownie McGhee for Lenox and Continental. Then it's on to the mid-forties and the two tracks for Alert (as Willie Jordan & His Swinging Five) followed by the Champion Jack Dupree Country Blues Band sides for Apollo in 1949. There's a ton of great music from the fifties on labels as diverse as Abbey, Apex, Gotham, Harlem, Derby and eventually, the King sides with Mickey Baker and Milton Batiste including one I never knew about - ‘Camille' from 1953 that features the dynamic playing of harmonica man Papa Lightfoot!

Needless to say, this set gives us a great view of Jack's vast repertoire - old traditional melodies, slow boogies, piano stomps, jitterbugs, shake dances, boogie woogies along with classic vintage New Orleans numbers like ‘Junker Blues', ‘Cabbage Greens' and ‘Big Leg Mama'.

A powerhouse of marvellous blues on 4 CDs" - RED LICK Blues
