George Whitesell & His All Stars featuring Jill Watkins is keeping alive the tradition of the classic jump, swing, r&b and blues bands of the golden era from the late 40's through mid 60's when "show bands" with a female singer were the rage.
Album Notes: As a child of the mid 50's I was drawn to the Rhythm and Blues music that was later to be called "Rock n Roll". I loved the sounds of Fats Domino, Little Richard, Ray Charles, Big Joe Turner, Roy Brown, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Johnny Otis and numerous others. It has always been my dream to put together a band and play the Jump, Swing, R&B and Blues music that I learned to love as a child.
