By the time she recorded for Vanguard, Big Mama Thornton's health was already fading but the gritty music she made on Sassy Mama! and Jail (VMD 79351) displayed no sign of flagging artistic ability. Recorded in the company of such top New York session musicians as Paul Griffin, Buddy Lucas and Cornell Dupree, Big Mama sings her blues with controlled passion in her unique sassy style.
Big Mama Thornton - Rolling Stone
