Very enjoyable album, recorded by jump blues sax veteran Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson with "Roomful of Blues" Big Band.

"Roomful Of Blues" were founded in 1967 as blues rock band, but later grew up to full Big Band with 5-members brass section and great electric guitarist. Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson in 80s participated on many blues and jazz stars albums, but this album is one between most successful one.He plays with support of real brass session and sings(in very B.B. King manner) on three songs, when Big Band plays not only great brass, but very bluesy electric guitar and piano as well.

Musically presented by mix of early r'n'b, Big Band and jazzy blues, this collaboration sound very inspired and not dated at all (I expect they should sound live even better!). Instrumental pieces sound as unique blues big band while vocal songs are more classic blues with brassy arrangements. Great album for funs of music on the edge between blues,r'n'b and jazz.
