O’s Notes: This is a collection of uptown blues, the stuff that passed the muster of critical Harlem crowds. The Queen of The Party is the late Irene Reid, one of the greatest blues singers of all time. This sampler celebrates her best hits on Savant Records including Eric Alexander (sax), Jim Rotondi (t), Bob DeVos (g) and Greg Rockingham (D). Producer Charles Earland led the band from his seat at the B3. No doubt this is a winner with many memories and listening pleasure that can be experienced each time you press ‘Play’.
