Album Review

The third of four volumes that include all of Jazz Gillum's recordings (other than a later album) features 25 more vocals by the fine 1930s-style harmonica player. 20 of the selections are from 1941-42 while the final five (from 1945-46) find him playing and singing in an unchanged style. Guitarist Big Bill Broonzy is on all but the final selection and the pianists are Horace Malcolm, Blind John Davis, Roosevelt Sykes or Big Maceo. Gillum was an effective if not overly distinctive singer while his harmonica solos are fairly basic, particularly compared to Sonny Boy Williamson and the soon-to-be discovered Little Walter. The tunes include "Me And My Buddy," "War Time Blues," "I'm Gonna Leave You On The Outskirts Of Town" (a different variation of "We're Going To Move To The Outskirts Of Town"), "You're Tearing Your Playhouse Down" and "Whiskey Head Buddies."

One of the pre-eminent Chicago harpists of the pre-war era, Bill "Jazz" Gillum was born September 11, 1904 in Indianola, Mississippi. He picked up the harmonica at the age of six, and five years later ran away from home to live with relatives in nearby Charleston; after spending his formative years playing street corners and house parties for spare change, Gillum moved to Chicago in 1923, and before long he hooked up with guitarist Big Bill Broonzy, often playing together as a duo in area clubs....
