After bringing Kansas City blues and boogie East in the Thirties and helping to sire rock and roll in the Forties and Fifties, Joe Turner launched the third epoch of his phenomenal career with Star-studded Pablo jam sessions like this one. The Trumpet Kings are Harry "Sweets" Edison, Roy Eldridge, Dizzy Gillespie, and Clark Terry, each a totally personal brass master; and guitarist Pee Wee Crayton also makes several choice contributions. The highlights are found on the two extended tracks, "I Know You Love Me Baby" and "T.V. Momma," where Turner spins out endless variations on t he blues while being goaded by the most incendiary trumpet section in memory.
