Down Beat original review: Nothing But the Blues
“Gather ‘round, children, and listen to the message of the blues. The whole story is right here in eight, eloquent preachments by as fine a quintet of wailers as can be assembled. One of the very best jazz albums this year. Don’t miss it. (John A. Tynan)
