An old-school "songster" who mixed blues, folk, popular, ragtime, and religious material in the grand medicine-show tradition, Jesse Fuller was also a gifted composer whose infectious songs entered the repertoires of such diverse performers as Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead, and Phoebe Snow. He was literally a lone cat in the music world, a one-man band who accompanied his distinctively gruff vocals with a 12-string guitar, a harmonica or kazoo, a sock cymbal, and a huge six-string bass called a fotdella that he built himself and played with his foot. And, as he also demonstrated on this wonderful Good Time Jazz session, he could tap-dance while flailing away at his guitar.
