Christina Gray mostly recorded vaudeville numbers with her partner Joe Lawrence,which aren’t my cup of tea really. However this solo track where she is speaking to the choir about how the preacher is her lover – has everything a blues song needs – solid piano playing by Joe Robichaux and a wonderful premise. The track is also fun because Gray doesn’t get around to singing much, which judging by her her duet tracks is a very good thing.

A rare piece. Wonderful piano! Is he a jazzman or a bluesman?

See ya!
