Tim Elliott's Blues Shouters

Tim Elliott's Blues Shouters image

The forgotten superheroes of 20th-century black music could be the leather-lunged blues shouters who worked in front of the large orchestras of the late 30s and 40s and forged the path for R&B and rock'n’roll in the 50s. Jimmy Rushing, Big Joe Turner, and Jimmy Witherspoon are saluted by Scotland’s top blues singer. He leads a specially assembled blues band and swinging hornsection in a mix of Kansas City Stomp, Jump-Blues, uptempo swing, and early R&B in a set of music that’s all about having a good-time party. Music of fervour, energy and electricity.
