Worried Jailhouse Blues

Montana Taylor is an amazing piano player – a rarity who was just as good at his own songs (mostly if not entirely instrumental) as he was an accompanist. He backed Bertha Chippie Hill on a number of tracks – and this track – Worried Jailhouse Blues is a page from the big book of blues phrases, Hill puts her wonderful voice behind all these shopworn phrases and refreshes them. Taylor is outstanding and as is Almond Leonard on washboard and kazoo – which as gimmicky as it reads, really works in the context of the recording.
