Pianist and bandleader Earl “Fatha” Hines was one of the most well-regarded jazz musicians of the 20th Century. Working with small ensembles, big bands and solo, Hines recorded nearly 100 albums. He also worked with vocalists and, on the next Vinyl Vault, we’ll hear tracks from one of those albums, “Jazz is His Old Lady and My Old Man.”
The album was released in 1977 on Catalyst Records and featured Marva Josie on vocals. Josie worked with Hines for over a decade and recorded a number of albums with him. On this one, Hines led a nine-piece band through a collection of standards including “Deed I Do,” “Just Squeeze Me (But Tease Me),” “Blue Skies” and more.
Join Geoff Anderson on the Vinyl Vault for Earl “Fatha” Hines and Marva Josie, on Tuesday, September 12 at 8:30 pm on KUVO JAZZ.
