Corn Whiskey !
Vocalist and bassist, born in Gurdon, Arkansas in 1923, Jimmy Witherspoon sang in church from the time he was five. In 1944 he joined the Jay McShann Band for four years, and then on his own he unleashed "Ain't Nobody's Business," acknowledged to be a classic performance. One of the great blues singers of the post-World War II period, he was also versatile enough to fit comfortably into the jazz world. Witherspoon passed away on September 18, 1997, at the age of 74.
