In the tradition of Wynonie Harris and Big Joe Turner comes blues shouter Duke Henderson. From concert promoter to minister, gospel dj to recording executive, Big Duke/Brother Henderson was a familiar and rather curious figure on the post-war LA entertainment scene. He recorded for many indie labels from 1945-53 including the classic "Hey Dr. Kinsey" for Flair in '53. "This set consists of a slab some of the finest blues shouting ever put on disc. This was the dawn of R&B, when the style was emerging from
larger bands down to more manageable combos." -Blues & Rhythm. With
Lucky Thompson, Charles Mingus, Lee Young, Shifty Henry, Teddy Buckner, Jack McVea.
