Mildred Anderson – Person To Person (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
Mildred Anderson, who recorded with organist Bill Doggett as early as 1953, only made two albums as a leader and, although thought of as as being in the R&B/blues field, both records have some notable jazz players supporting her. For this CD reissue, Anderson is joined by tenor-saxophonist Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, organist Shirley Scott, bassist George Duvivier and drummer Arthur Edgehill for such songs as “Hello Little Boy,” “Person to Person” and “Kidney Stew Blues” (the latter two tunes were associated with Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson). Despite being rather brief (just 31 minutes), this set is worth checking out if quite obscure.

Track listing:
“I’m Gettin’ ‘Long Alright” (Bobby Sharp, Charles Singleton) – 2:44
“I’m Free” (Singleton) – 4:57
“Don’t Deceive Me (Please Don’t Go)” (Chuck Willis) – 4:33
“Hello Little Boy” (Mildred Anderson) – 3:47
“Person to Person” (Wally Gold) – 3:07
“Cool Kind of Poppa” (Anderson) – 2:57
“Kidney Stew Blues” (Leona Blackman, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson) – 3:50
“I Didn’t Have a Chance” (Curry) – 4:45
