Ella Mae Morse - Barrelhouse, Boogie And The Blues (CD)
Release Date: 06/05/12
32 tracks celebrating the defining releases of Ella Mae Morse's career.
She was of the same vintage as the great blues-affiliated divas Sister Rosetta Thorpe, Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington. Like them too, she inhabited a stylistic area bordered by gospel, jazz, hillbilly, showbiz evergreens, vaudeville and all manner of trace elements in North America's cultural melting pot. Originally released on vinyl in 1954, and highlighted here along with some of her other most notable records, Barrelhouse, Boogie and the Blues was the defining release of Morse's career, showcasing her full range as a performer and eclectic music taste gained from her many travels.
