  • Jimmy Witherspoon - I Had A Dream

    2:36

    This was Jimmy's third album for Prestige, recorded late in 1963. He's in excellent form here, and this is a solid blues recording. More than half of the tunes are slow, heart-breaking killers, and Spoon dishes them up perfectly. He sings often about thwarted love here, and he does so with a gruffness and biting anger/regret that goes right to the quick.

    From 'Blues Around the Clock', I Had A Dream, written by Jimmy, is a remake of an old King recording and is a highlight of the record.

    Don't know when I was born

    The trouble I've been havin'
    Seem like I was raised in a orphan home

    My mother died an' left me
    When I was only two years old
    My mother died an' left me
    When I was two years old

    An' the trouble I've been havin'
    The good Lord, only knows

    I've been treated like an orphan
    An' been workin' like a slave
    I've been treated like an orphan
    An' I've been workin' like a slave

    An' if I never get my revenge
    Evilness will carry me to my grave

    Now I've been havin' trouble
    Ever since I've been grown
    Lord knows, I've been havin' trouble
    Trouble, trouble, ever since I was grown

    Well, I'm too old for the orphans
    An' too young for the old folks home

    Evenin' blues
    1963 - Prestige PRLP 7300
    1993 - Original Blues Classics OBC 511

    This relaxed, rather informal August 15, 1963 session is one of Jimmy Witherspoon's rarest and was the only time that the great Arkansas shouter recorded with T-Bone Walker, the Texas-born father of electric blues guitar. In an unusual appearance as a sideman, Walker contributed his trademark brittle-toned solos, obbligatos, and from the five intros to a set of tunes that included such standards as Money's Gettin' Cheaper (a 'Spoon favorite since he borrowed it from Charles Brown in the late Forties), How Long Blues, Good Rockin' Tonight, Kansas City, and Don't Let Go. And adding further Texas seasoning was San Antonio saxophonist Clifford Scott, best known for his distinctive solos on Honky Tonk and other Bill Doggett hits, who not only played tenor (as the original credits indicate), but blew searing alto on Grab Me a Freight and flute on 'Spoon's reading of the haunting title track, a blues ballad previously associated with both Jimmy Rushing and Walker.

    Personell: Clifford Scott, Bert Kendrix, T-Bone Walker, Clarence Jones, Wayne Robertson

  • Jimmy Witherspoon - Cold, Cold Feeling

    5:46

    Album: Spoon's Life, Buy: Lyrics: I've got a cold, cold feelin'; it's just like ice around my heart
    I've got a cold, cold feelin'; it's just like ice around my heart
    I know I'm gonna' quit somebody, every time that, feelin' starts

    You treat me like a prisoner, because my hands are tied
    Everything you do to me, is stackin' up inside

    It's a cold, cold feelin' yeah, you're just like ice around my heart
    I know I'm gonna' quit somebody, every time that, feelin' starts

    There's a change in me baby, once I was blind but now I can see
    There's a change in me baby, once I was blind but now I can see
    I'm gonna' put everybody down baby
    That ever made a fool outta me

    One of the great blues singers of the post-World War II period, Jimmy Witherspoon was also versatile enough to fit comfortably into the jazz world. The song Cold Cold Feeling was written by Jessie Mae Robinson and was first released by T-Bone Walker in 1952

  • Jimmy Witherspoon - Past Forty Blues

    4:20

    Jimmy Witherspoon recorded a series of excellent albums for Verve in the late '60s. Unfortunately, these have not received the attention they deserve, and are frequently relegated in Witherspoon's huge catalog. The Blues Is Now is arguably the finest of these recordings, and Witherspoon's voice is in top form and hugely expressive. A light-night blues classic, this is Witherspoon at his most relaxed and assured and is a joy to listen to.

    You treat me like a prisoner, because my hands are tied
    Everything you do to me, is stackin' up inside

    It's a cold, cold feelin' yeah, you're just like ice around my heart
    I know I'm gonna' quit somebody, every time that, feelin' starts

    There's a change in me baby, once I was blind but now I can see
    There's a change in me baby, once I was blind but now I can see
    I'm gonna' put everybody down baby
    That ever made a fool outta me

    Jimmy Witherspoon (August 8, 1920 - September 18, 1997) was an American #blues singer.

    James John (Jimmy) #Witherspoon, also known by the nickname “Spoon”, was a versatile #blues shouter who achieved commercial success and critical acclaim in the genres of #blues, jazz, and rhythm and blues. His 1947 recording “Ain’t Nobody’s Business” was a hit in 1949 and became his signature song.

    His date of birth is usually given as August 8, 1923, but some sources give the birth year as 1920, and more than one source gives the birth date as August 18, 1921, attributing the information to his son. Since he may have run away from home to Los Angeles, California, as early as 1935, the earlier dates seem more plausible. In a 1996 interview, he gave his age as seventy-four, which also corresponds with the 1921 date.
    Jimmy Witherspoon was born in Gurdon (Clark County) Arkansas to Leonard Witherspoon, a Missouri Pacific Railroad brakeman, and Eva Tatum #Witherspoon, a church pianist. The family was devoutly religious. His parents were members of the choir at their Baptist church.

    He didn't pursue music professionally until after his stint in the Merchant Marines in World War II. On his return to the Unites States in 1944, he replaced Walter Brown in Jay McShann's band, and performed with Big Joe Turner and T-Bone Walker.

    Witherpoon's first hit record was Ain't Nobody's Business, which he followed in 1949 with a reworking of the Leroy Carr song In the Evening When the Sun Goes Down. His hit Ain't Nobody's Business was one of the biggest records of the era, and stayed on the Billboard charts for 34 weeks. Spoon made at least 200 recordings, and was one of the few true giants of the post-war blues boom.

    #Witherspoon recorded for a variety of labels through the 1950s, including cornerstone sides with Swingtime, Federal, Chess, RCA, and even a Dixieland session with The Wilbur de Paris New Orleans Jazz Band for Atlantic in 1956. His long career included performances on jazz stages around the world, from Carnegie Hall to the Newport Jazz Festival, touring Japan with Count Basie, and European tours with Buck Clayton's All Stars. Witherspoon managed to span the worlds of #blues, R&B, and jazz with his deep baritone voice and unique style.

    #Witherspoon died September 18, 1997 in Los Angeles, California.

    Spoon first attracted attention singing with Teddy Weatherford's band in Calcutta, India, which made regular radio broadcasts over the U. S. Armed Forces Radio Service during World War II. Witherspoon made his first records with Jay McShann's band in 1945. In 1949, recording under his own name with the McShann band, he had his first hit, Ain't Nobody's Business, a song which came to be regarded as his signature tune. In 1950 he had hits with two more songs closely identified with him: No Rollin' Blues, Big Fine Girl, as well as Failing By Degrees and New Orleans Woman recorded with the Gene Gilbeaux Orchestra which included Herman Washington and Don Hill on the Modern Records label. These were recorded from a live performance on May 10, 1949 at a Just Jazz concert Pasadena, CA sponsored by Gene Norman. Another classic Witherspoon composition is Times Gettin' Tougher Than Tough.

    Witherspoon's style of #blues - that of the blues shouter - became unfashionable in the mid-1950s, but he returned to popularity with his 1959 album, Jimmy Witherspoon at the Monterey Jazz Festival, which featured Roy Eldridge, Woody Herman, Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, Earl Hines and Mel Lewis, among others. He later recorded with Gerry Mulligan, Leroy Vinnegar, Richard Groove Holmes and T-Bone Walker.

    Ever since 1927, when Al Jolson promised “You ain’t heard nothin’ yet” in The Jazz Singer, music and the movies have been inextricably linked. In the 90 years since then, the blues has bolstered more than its share of soundtracks, as you will discover on this comprehensive collection. The blues has reached across into much of contemporary cinema, and film makers have become fascinated by the lives of the legendary figures whose music had so inspired them. So sit back and enjoy a very special blend of two American archetypes: the blues, and the movies...

    That's how Robben describes Jimmy Witherspoon but the same could be said of Mr Ford. while 'spoon's vocal talents are severely diminished here, his back up group positively cooks. The rhythm section is tight, the B3 player (whose name obviously eludes 'spoon -give it to HIM!) is tasty and Robben is clearly inspired. He has that unique combination of intelligence, feel, tone and swing and clearly knows how to support the singer and the song. The performance is a little more measured than it is raw but Robben's choices are so perfect, it's impossible to find fault. Despite the game but less-than-stellar performance by Jimmy Witherspoon, this set delivers big time. ---William Nollman.



    This performance by Robben Ford and Jimmy Witherspoon should be listened to in conjunction with their earlier performance when Robben Ford was just 18 or so (The cd is Live and is available here).For my money Robben Ford´s playing on the earlier cd is more interesting and more vital.He's never been one to play much with pentatonics but even when he does you can feel something.With Jimmy Witherspoon singing its a great pairing. --- Wylie Spicer.

    One of the great blues singers of the post-World War II period, Jimmy Witherspoon was also versatile enough to fit comfortably into the jazz world. Witherspoon was born on August 8, 1920, in Gurdon, AR. As a child, he sang in a church choir, and made his debut recordings with Jay McShann for Philo and Mercury in 1945 and 1946. His own first recordings, using McShann's band, resulted in a number one R&B hit in 1949 with Ain't Nobody's Business, Pts. 1 & 2 on Supreme Records. Live performances of No Rollin' Blues and Big Fine Girl provided 'Spoon with two more hits in 1950.

    Jimmy Witherspoon at the Monterey Jazz Festival The mid-'50s were a lean time, with his style of shouting blues temporarily out of fashion; singles were tried for Federal, Chess, Atco, Vee Jay, and others, with little success. Jimmy Witherspoon at the Monterey Jazz Festival (HiFi Jazz) from 1959 lifted him back into the limelight. Partnerships with Ben Webster or Groove Holmes were recorded, and he toured Europe in 1961 with Buck Clayton, performing overseas many more times in the decades to follow; some memorable music resulted, but Witherspoon's best 1960s album is Evening Blues (Prestige), which features T-Bone Walker on guitar and Clifford Scott on saxophone. As the '70s began, Witherspoon decided to take a short break from live performances, settled in Los Angeles, took a job as a disc jockey, and continued making records. In 1971 Witherspoon teamed up with former Animals vocalist Eric Burdon for the album Guilty. Unfortunately it sold poorly. By 1973 his short retirement from live performances was over. Witherspoon was ready to get back on the road and assembled an amazing band featuring a young Robben Ford on lead guitar. Those live shows had received positive reviews, rejuvenating Witherspoon's move toward a definite rock/soul sound. He traveled to London in 1974 to record Love Is a Five Letter Word with British blues producer Mike Vernon. Vernon had produced critically acclaimed British blues albums by John Mayall, Fleetwood Mac, and Ten Years After. By the early '80s, Witherspoon was diagnosed with throat cancer. Although he remained active and was a popular concert attraction, the effect of the disease on his vocals was obvious. Witherspoon passed away on September 18, 1997, at the age of 77.
