Meet Me with Your Black Drawers on: My Life in Music [With CD] by Jeannie Cheatham
Jeannie Cheatham was trained in both the classical tradition and in the famous Kansas City jazz tradition by some of its greatest musicians: She began writing this memoir in longhand on yellow-lined legal pads on her 70th birthday.
She writes of a life spent fighting racism and sexism, of rage and resolve, misery and miracles, betrayals and triumphs, of faith almost lost in dark places but mysteriously regained in a flash of light. Jeannie Cheatham played piano for them all. Her riveting stories range from hilarious to haunting as she teaches us about life through her own adventures and misadventures.
The song is being played on a regular basis on stations in Washington, D. The musicians, individually and collectively, are Masters. They come together in a medley of shared ideas, stepping out with creative solos, presenting a magnificent feast of joyful music.

Their energy, based on spiritual inspiration, flows from one to the other. Their emphasis is on sharing - not only with each other, but with the audience, making the audience one with the band. Their music is unrestrained, exuberant, soulful, rollicking, growling, howling, roaring, wicked, virtuous, wild and truthful. Thank you for bringing us back to The Truth!

Meet Me With Your Black Drawers On Lyrics Della Reese ※ catchsomeair.us Mojim Lyrics
Having heard what Sydney and Hollis could do live with a slow ballad, Kevin suggested that a ballads-torch song album be recorded. To bring out the best in songs like these you need two things above anything else. One, a singer who can sing. Two, a soloist who knows how to play a melody line as though he were singing.
Meet Me With Your Black Drawers On by Gloria Hardiman
With Sydney and Hollis, Kevin saw both of these qualities. Sydney and Kevin spent months developing and working on the phrasing for Sydney.
The tempos of each song were set based on ease and impact of Sydney's singing. Arrangements were kept simple and to the point. The point being the words and the meaning in each song focusing on melody line, soulfulness in Sydney's tone, the dramatic use of space and timing to accent and impact the melody line and words. Hollis' intros and solos were in the same vain as though he were a second singer on the project.

The rhythm section was arranged as to support without crowding Sydney or Hollis, chord voicing was arranged to support and enhance the melody line. Perhaps the hardest part of this project was developing a groove and bounce to some of the songs where in the source recording there was none. Expression with tone and timber. This is what defines a singer as a "Singer's Singer", Sydney shows ample talent and ability in the very first number.
This is a very old Lil Green Blues song. It has a very subtle drive to the groove.
