Ο άφθαστος τραγουδιστής των blues και της jazz Jimmy Rushing [1901-1972] ξεκίνησε την καριέρα του δίπλα στον Jelly Roll Morton. Για 13 χρόνια ήταν ο βασικός τραγουδιστής της Count Basie Orchestra, ενώ μετά τη διάλυσή της συνεργάστηκε περιστασιακά με καλλιτέχνες όπως οι Duke Ellington και Dave Brubeck. Κυκλοφόρησε επίσης ένα αριθμό προσωπκών άλμπουμ, όπως το Five Feet Of Soul, από όπου προέρχεται η ηχογράφηση του κλασικού τραγουδιού των Grainger/Robbins.

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
