PINOCCHIO JAMES – 21 ORIGINAL RECORDINGS – CJRO CD

Pinnochio James had a fabulous deep rich voice and sang jump blues, jazz, blues, RnB and Rock n roll. He fronted Orchestras led by people such as Lionel Hampton and Todd Rhodes at a time when the leader was the star and the singer was part of the ensemble.  Hopefully this collection of his records will bring him the attention he deserves.
