Review
Big Joe Turner really stretches out during this Pablo date (reissued on CD), singing only five songs: an 11-minute version of Woody Guthrie's "How Come My Dog Don't Bark," three basic originals and "Rocks in My Bed." Sticking to the blues, Turner is joined by four horns (including altoist Bobby Smith), pianist Lloyd Glenn, and a rhythm section that includes guitarist Pee Wee Crayton (the most prominent soloist). The very spontaneous music has plenty of riffing from the horns and fine late-period shouting from Big Joe. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
