Papa Charlie Jackson's last 25 recordings, dating from September of 1928 through November of 1934, and doing more proper blues here than on either previous volume. By the time of the release of the material here, Jackson was one of the most seasoned of studio bluesmen, with nearly half a decade recording experience behind him — his vocal presence on all of these records is extraordinary, and he knows how to get the most out of his instrument, guitar or banjo.

Tiny Parham & The Blues Singers 1926 - 1928
DOCD-5341 Tiny Paraham & The Blues Singers (1926-1928) Genres: Male & Female vocal with piano and or bands, Blues, Jazz Informative booklet notes by Reide Kaiser. Detailed discography. Document Records, in collecting together these performances, have revealed another side to Parham, that of the accompanist. These are also a record of his piano style, although of course they were never so intended. The singers backed by Parham needed a sensitive, restrained accompanist to support them and add to their performances. In this context virtuosity is a mixed blessing; a pianist who wishes to do a solo turn will not be in great demand. Besides being entertaining in themselves, these recordings allow us to glean quite a bit about Parham the musician. He demonstrates a sensitivity to the blues particular to Midwestern pianism (with traces of the eight-to-the-bar rolling basses), a knowledge of white novelty piano (manifested by an oft-repeated figuration of fourths), and the broken tenths typical of much black piano playing. There is an overriding impression of classical training. Parham also has impeccable timing.

Although all of the eleven artists appearing on this twelfth volume, of a superb fourteen volume series, would undoubtedly have been no strangers to the stages of the vaudeville circuit, the recordings of four of them are notable in the world of entertainment. Hattie Mcdaniel was best known for her non-singing roles as a maid or �mammy� in films, radio and television beginning in the early 1930�s, including a spot in Gone With The Wind (1939) for which she became the first African American to win an Academy Award.
