If you by chance have a copy of Quincy Jones’ “Q’s Juke Joint” CD from 2000, check out this version sung by Phil Collins and I think Saxophone solo is by Joe Henderson?

Thank you My Brother for turning my head into mush with this offering from Mary J. The truth is that I am not a fan of her work. Further truth is that I summarily dismissed her some years ago without so much as a glance back. There was the dim disconnect that you reference regarding Billie Holiday…who has always been in my player since back in the days of hair. Nonetheless this song has tamed either one or both of us and Mary J. will get a few of my dollars on this project alone. Somewhere along the way it seems that Ms B has learned to live inside the music and dance on the lyrics. With this piece she paints the walls with all that she is worth and I can appreciate the effort. My office has been abuzz for the past hour with curious glances and the odd visitor since coming to the site and playing the various versions.

Thank you for the new ears.

Who did the vocal on Duke Ellington’s “Hey, Pretty Baby” and another groups’ “Do Nothing Till You Hear from Me”?
