For the most part this is a 1961 session wherein the blues raconteur and pianist Memphis Slim runs through a good chunk of his repertoire the songs that came to mind that afternoon As such its relaxed entertainment rather than a fixed recording for a larger audience Which is not to say an audience cant enjoy this music Slims piano playing is dynamically rich delicate at times and pounding when necessary His vocals are strong too but just as capable of dropping down to just above a whisper to make a point They just dont make records like this anymore documents of an artist at work without any attempt to be outside the moment&nbsp
