sings Bessie Smith
Filmed in New York City in 2009 featuring Catherine Russell vocals, accompanied by Mark Shane at the piano.
*"Kitchen Man" was written by Andy Razaf and Alex Bellenda.
New York jazz royalty Catherine Russell the daughter of the late Luis Russell carries on the family tradition as a remarkable singing sensation. In this memorable performance she tackles a favorite originally recorded back in May 1929 by Bessie Smith.
Madam Bucks may have plenty of servants, footmen, butlers, and maids but her favorite is undoubtedly Sam, her Kitchen Man and when he tries to quit she simply won't have it. As a matter of fact this entire double entendre song is written in his praise.
