FORTUNE, JESSE / FORTUNE TELLIN MAN -Cassette *DLM 658
It doesn’t happen very often anymore. An obscure blues figure, revered by aficionados for a handful of memorable recordings, leaps right out of the dusty discographical pages and materializes in the flesh with something new to say musically.
In Jesse Fortune’s case, that’s precisely what has happened–and this long-overdue debut album, a sizzling collaboration between the veteran Chicago vocalist and Delmark’s acclaimed young combo, Dave Specter and the Bluebirds, is the happy result. Jesse’s enthusiasm blasts forth every time he sings on this album.
Recorded July 26-28, 1992.
