The title--Jazz, Folk Songs, Spirituals, and Blues--says it. While often associated with the blues, Jesse Fuller (1896-1976) was an all-around entertainer, an old-school "songster" who effortlessly crossed stylistic boundaries. He became a professional musician relatively late in life, in 1951, and quickly attracted a fervent international following to his catchy original compositions and treatments of traditional material, his craggy voice, raggy Georgia-honed 12-string guitar picking, and unique, ruckus-raising one-man-band setup. This 1958 Good Time Jazz album, his debut for the label, ranks among Fuller's finest recordings.
