Blow Wynn Blow / J.W. Bop - Jim Wynn and his Orchestra (Supreme 1509)




Many thanks to El Emascarado for the new improved rips from this 78 rpm disc by Big Jim Wynn. Hope you dig the superior sound quality! Please click on the LP cover below to link to a previous post with biographical details of the man himself.


The personnel on "Blow Wynn Blow" and "J.W. Bop" was as follows:
Jim Wynn - baritone sax on "Blow Wynn Blow" and tenor sax on "J.W. Bop, Eddie Preston - trumpet, Eddie Hale - alto sax, Pete Peterson or Freddie Simon or Eddie Davis - tenor sax, Zel Kindred - piano, Shifty Henry - bass, Robert 'Snake' Sims - drums.

The tracks were recorded in November 1948. Both are good romping instrumentals which sit smack dab in the middle of what I like to call the Be Bop Wino zone - honkingly good R&B veering towards jazz.

The perfect way to end a long, stressful week is with a post from Boogie Woody! I actually like both sides of this and can't make up my mind which I prefer. What fun it is looking at the label scans. I'm really getting my education here, Boogie Woody - I've never heard Jim Wynn before. Thanks for all of your hard work - it's so much appreciated!

Hope you feel o.k. in the morning.

The words in blue about 2 lines above the LP cover, Marie. I'll take another look at the wording on the post once I've shaken off my hangover.

Aha! I've managed to turn the LP cover into a link to my original Big Jim Wynn post from back in May 2010. Thanks Marie. I'm going to open another bottle of Chablis to celebrate!
