I liked a lot of the songs that Nate and yourself posted and I have a number of them, but I don't think I'll ever have a "complete" list because all those songs on the lists that I don't know i am going to try to track down. I'm always on the look out for new (or at least new-to-me) music.

I guess I should point out that is my complete "current" list. It will likely change as I discover new music and grow old of some of those tunes. I didn't list the blues songs that I listened too so much I grew tired of.

Very interesting thread. Especially since I've DJing blues for less than a year, maybe coming up on a year. As always, I'm amazed by everyone's love and knowledge of the music.

I'm currently going through my collection in preparation for Cheap Thrills, so maybe I'll have my all-time fave list after that event. :)

I just bought a 4-disc Proper Box set of Wynonie Harris... so I'm rediscovering my love of him. :)

I know LindyChef is a big Jeannie & Jimmy Cheatham fan, and I'd like to expand what little I have of them.

My current fave track: "Love Where Did You Go" by Dayna Kurtz.

One of my fave jump blues songs is by him - Lovin' Machine ... frickin' awesome.

The only problem with them is that they use very similar chord progressions and BPMs in their songs, so they start to sound like each other ;)

Hmmm.... never noticed that since I don't have that much J&J. But I probably wouldn't mind, since they've become like comfort food to me.

BTW, I started a separate thread if you have CD recommendations. :)

i agree with both martin and tina about jeannie and jimmie cheatham. most of their music has a very similar feel - straight ahead, swinging kansas city style jazz/blues. i wouldn't say it has a uniform tempo... they cover the range of 45bpm to 130bpm quite fully. only about 15% of their songs are faster than that however. and yes their music is all comfort food. :)

I'd have to go over my notes, but I think I only played one of their songs... "Back to the Hood".

Spent some time trolling eMusic for some of their selections. I don't think they have a lot of variety, but the energy of their music appeals to me.
