Voodoo Blues !
Joe Williams was born in Cordele Georgia in 1918 and raised in Chicago by his mother. Chicago radio served as a vehicle for Joe to experience the many great jazz and blues artists of that time.
He sang with many bands including Red Saunders, Johnny Long, Erskine Tate, Jimmy Noone, Coleman Hawkins, Lionel Hampton, and of course, Count Basie. That association lasted from 1954 to 1961, when Basie's "Number One Son" left the band with Basie's blessing to become a solo performer.
Anyway, here’s two fantastic tracks from 1951 that ‘Jumpin’’ Joe Williams recorded with the mighty Red Saunders’ Orchestra.
