Talking about Josh White...

I thought I'd bring things back to Josh White...his style and capabilities are reminiscent of Lonnie Johnson who was also a great player. Here, FDR's confidant plays an old tune that I like to associate with Bessie Smith: Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out.

Be sure to check him out - luckily he was recorded a ton during the 1930's when most players lost all their recording contracts.
