“You can’t rehearse a blues, darlin’.”

 

– Joe Williams

 

Joe Williams (1918 – 1999) was a well-known jazz vocalist, a baritone singer, a mixture of blues, ballads, popular songs, and jazz standards. He got his big break in 1954, when he was hired as the male vocalist for the Count Basie Orchestra. He remained with Basie until 1961, garnering some of the best exposure a blues and jazz singer could have.
