  1. The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing: megalsaigenuadamath.xyzinfo I don't go out walking I ain't for no talking My baby's done left me Just a sittin' and a rockin' If I had been scheming Instead of just dreaming He'd never have left me Just a sittin' and a rockin' Sittin all day without holding my baby Makes me so blue and sad If he don't hurry and come back It's a cinch to drive me mad Now if I.
  2. This CD fills an important gap in the discographies of both Joe Williams and Ben Webster. While Williams was in town for a week-long gig at Pio's in Providence, Rhode Island, he and his group (pianist Junior Mance, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Mickey Roker) were surprised to find Ben Webster in the club one night, so he was invited to sit in.
  3. Doing his best to escape from the stereotype of being strictly a blues singer, Williams performs both superior standards and obscurities on the spirited LP. Highlights include "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams," "It's a Wonderful World," "Just A-Sittin' and A-Rockin'" and "Jump for Joy.".

  7. I heard a track from this album on WBGO Jazz in the New York City (my home) / New Jersey area - it is based out of Newark, and I had to hear more. If you are new to Joe Williams, this would be a fine start. Dr. Paul Racioppi, Jr., Brooklyn, New York, Sunday, March 26, /5(3).
  8. Actually, "At Newport `63" is my favorite album out of the two but I can't see how anyone can go wrong with anything by Joe Williams whom I have enjoyed ever since what I believe was his first album, "A Man Ain't Supposed to Cry". His passing was a tremendous loss and I am still overwhelmed when I hear him. All I can say is "buy this album".5/5(1).
