Big Joe Is Here by Big Joe Turner
Released: Apr 2005
Label: Rhino Atlantic
Big Joe is a bit mischievous on Big Joe is Here. You can hear it when he carouses with another man's wife on "Married Woman," or when he tells his baby on "Midnight Cannonball" that there's "trouble trouble on my mind, trouble all the time." It adds to the sense of menace that he's backed by some of the most gleefully drunken music to ever come out of New Orleans. Three-part harmonies and rolling piano lines back up Big Joe's gregarious vocals.
