Biography

The premier blues shouter of the postwar era, Big Joe Turner's roar could rattle the very foundation of any gin joint he sang within -- and that's without a microphone. Turner was a resilient figure in the history of blues -- he effortlessly spanned boogie-woogie, jump blues, even the first wave of rock & roll, enjoying great success in each genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the enduring voices of the last century January 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Joe Turner made some great jump blues records in the thirties, forties and fifties, but I have always felt that his jazzy blues outings on Pablo Records in the seventies and eighties were even better...Turner gets to stretch his performances, the musicians are allowed to jam on and on, and everybody seem to be cool and comfortable. Listen to "Rocks In My Bed" for a taste of how good a simple blues can get! This album must not be confused with the similarly-titled album of hits from the forties, which, however, is also a gem. To understand Turner in his later years, try the album with Roy Eldridge, Milt Jackson and PeeWee Crayton ("Nobody In Mind"), as well as the wonderful album reviewed here...

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Joe Turner May 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Joe Turner is somewhat of a legend in the blues community. I saw him live at the Blue Note in Greenwich Village in 1989. He recently passed away, but his music will live forever. His songs contain clever lyrics like "How come my dog don't bark when you come knockin' at my door?"
