The debut release by Jeannie and Jimmy Cheatham's Sweet Baby Blues Band is the first of their many very enjoyable recordings. Jeannie's powerful piano playing and strong voice are major assets, but the octet also has five major horn soloists (trumpeter Snooky Young, both Curtis Peagler and Charles McPherson on altos, bass trombonist Jimmy Cheatham and, making his debut, Jimmie Noone, Jr. on soprano and clarinet), plus veteran Red Callender (on bass and tuba) and drummer John "Ironman" Harris. The spirited ensemble plays five Kansas City blues standards and three originals, including their hit "Meet Me With Your Black Drawers On." Wonderful and swinging music.
