Evelyn Preer (Evelyn Thompson) was a Chicago Blues/Jazz singer more known for her stage act than her recording career, which only includes a half-dozen songs split between two names, and these two songs were never issued. She’s not the best singer – but her band (including a young Duke Ellington on piano and Sonny Greer on drums on the second song) really shines on these tracks transforming an average batch blues songs into something hot and memorable.
