Description
Everyone knows that there is a lot of injustice in the recording industry. There are many weak artists who achieve success where many other more talented artists fail. This release attempts to air two such talented artists who have not had the success that their talents deserve. The first is Fred Johnson, a supreme talent clinging on to the great sounds of vocal jazz at a time when many others sold out to popular fame. The second is Freddy Cole, ironically singing 'Brother Where Are You?' when the answer from his superstar brother Nat is 'On the gravy train, baby'.

These two beauties are a tantalising suggestion of the artists that have been overlooked over the years, and Jazzman Records is glad to be able to showcase their talents to the discerning listener of today.

From the independently produced LP 'Live at B.B. Joe's' cut in Florida in 1984 comes this gem of a vocal-jazz tune. Jazz is always the theme, chops of percussion, hardcore piano riffs; but it's the voice that does it. Somewhere between Jon Lucien and Jon Hendricks appears Fred Johnson. Fred tells me that his first love has always been singing, why hasn't he been heard more?

Upon hearing the silky tones of Freddy's voice it doesn't take the listener too long to realise that his voice bears the familial resemblance to that of brother Nat. Easing through a lively version of the classic Oscar Brown Jr. tune, Freddy tells us how it is with touches of funk, jazz & a lotta soul.
