Feat. Jimmy O'Bryant


This recording was produced in Chicago during March of 1924 featuring Ma Rainey vocals, accompanied by Tommy Ladnier cornet, Jimmy O'Bryant clarinet, Charles Harris alto sax, and Lovie Austin piano.

*"Honey Where You Been So Long?" was written by Tom Delaney.

In her typical half moned sing-song delivery "Mother of the Blues" Gertrude 'Ma' Rainey belts her heart out backed by "Lovie Austin's Blues Serenaders" and the prominent high register clarinet playing of Jimmy O'Bryant.

This song conveys two strong yet completely opposing emotions; anger towards her man's prolonged absence, and joy for his return.
