Guitarist, singer and songwriter Charley Jordan was a popular and important figure of the St. Louis blues scene along with pianist Peetie Wheatstraw. Born in Arkansas, he had a high-spirited vocal delivery, and a deft touch as guitarist, primarily in what came to be called the Piedmont style, which made him a popular accompanist. This 47-track 2CD set features most of his recordings for Vocalion under his own name which are extant, plus recordings as Uncle Skipper for Decca. This is an interesting and entertaining insight into the kind of music played in St. Louis, and a worthy showcase for a distinctive talent. A worthy addition to Acrobat’s blues catalogue.ARTIST
