Windy City Boogie

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
J.T. Brown had a long career as Chicago's preeminent blues tenor saxophonist with his unique "nanny goat" vibrato, and these sides collected in this 20-track collection spotlight his stays with the United, JOB and Atomic H labels spread out between 1951 to 1960.
