Julia Lee's King Size Papa

See more » Listening

What has been called blues music has meant many different things. Often it is melancholy even bitter reflections on lost love and frustrated lust. But a blues shouter like Joe Turner is apt to shake, rattle and role along. And blues piano was the rocking sound of boogie-woogie.

Kansas City's First Lady of the Blues
Julia Lee

Some of the track on Julia Lee’s Kansas City’s First Lady of the Blues are of sober resignation in the faithlessness of men.

But what most people remember and I enjoy most are her double-entendre songs. Take her King Size Papa “there’s such a lot of him” and “everything I need he carries in his king size pack.”

Julia Lee’s band, called her Boyfriends was an ad hoc, often changing group. On this two CD set many cuts feature Benny Carter and Red Norvo.
