HighNote CD 7151
How About Me
In a world of computer-generated graphics, Elvis impersonators and artificial flavorings it is good to have something as genuinely human and from-the-heart as ERNIE ANDREWS' latest HighNote recording. Few singers in recent memory can conjure up the feeling of bare-feet-in-the-mud honesty and integrity as Ernie can (Jimmy Rushing and Alberta Hunter come to mind as others among the select few). Here, with tenor saxman Houston Person in tow, Ernie recalls the talents and influence of his friends such as Billy Eckstine, Earl Coleman and the great Al Hibbler in a selection of eleven memorable tunes ranging from the familiar to the obscure done in Ernie's own, unique, touching style. There is no teacher like experience and Ernie Andrews has a lifetime's worth to share.
