Overview

This fine collection of Sykes's early-'50s sides for Chicago's United Records was reissued on Delmark in 2000. It contains some of the pianist's finest work with his jumping combo, the Honeydrippers (with unusual augmentation from violinist Remo Biondi on one 1952 date). "Toy Piano Blues" finds Sykes switching over to celeste, but "Too Hot to Handle," "Walking the Boogie," and "Fine and Brown" are in the customary Sykes mode.

Mmmm. Can't do any better than this. It's the real McCoy. The best in blues, jazzy piano blues from Chicago, vintage 1952. God bless whoever is responsible for putting it out on CD. I've had it in vinyl for years.
