At the tail end of 1960 the ageless soloist recorded this attractive assortment of blues and ballads. His vocals are as rich as Godiva chocolate, and his guitar phrases glide through tempos with the ease, sophistication, and intense feeling that won him the admiration of comrades Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Victoria Spivey decades earlier.
