View jazz video Kansas City Blues on Youtube

Jimmy Rushing was the grand-daddy of all big-band blues singers, fronting many bands, especially the Count Basie band from the '30s through the '50s. Here he is in a 1957 broadcast together with a Count Basie Orchestra. This is the Kansas Ciy Blues. The back up of his vocal is by Ben Webster on tenor. The solos in between the vocals are by trombonist Dickie Wells, trumpet player Roy Eldridge and tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins.
