Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

Billie Holiday - P.S. I Love You (Verve Records 1954)


Denny Farrell played this on his Late Night Chicago Radio show. What a great lyric by Johnny Mercer. The grandmaster of lyric writing and, what a great rendition by Billie - the song and the voice will be in my head forever.
Lance.
PS: Thanks for the name check Denny.
Listen here for those cool Chicago sounds.
