Sin & Soul...And Then Some [Bonus Tracks]

Oscar Brown, Jr.'s debut recording, Sin & Soul, is a true classic. A brilliant lyricist, a dramatic singer, and a highly individual genius in his own way, Brown performed a dozen memorable selections for this album. His lyrics to "Work Song," "Watermelon Man," "Afro-Blue," and particularly "Dat Dere" are famous; "But I Was Cool" and "Signifyin' Money" are humorous; "Bid 'Em In" is a chilling depiction of a slave auction; and "Rags and Old Iron" is quite touching. Essential music from an underrated great.

Sin & Soul and then some is right up there with Miles Davis "Kinda Blue" and John Coltrane's "Love Supreme" as far as definitive jazz albums. The songs range from the humorus "Signifyin Monkey" to the sentimental "Dat Dere" to the profound "Brown Baby" if you are a fan of vocal jazz this album must be in your collection... in fact if you have two ears and a soul this album must be in your collection. Oscar Brown is simply one of the greatest.
