WILLIE TEE - DEDICATED TO YOU (In tribute to Wardell Quezergue)

New Orleans arranger/ musician/ producer Wardell Quezergue has passed away; Wardell was active in music up until the end. I can think of no better way to go.

Wardell has worked with many artists, too numerous to mention (including The Pointer Sisters on "Send Him Back", an entry here a few weeks back). My personal favorite work of Mr Q's is with Willie Tee. These fellows waxed some stunning records together, such as the immortal "Teasin' You" and "Thank You John" (both past 45's of the day). Today's selection is the b-side to "Thank You John" and in a gorgeous way it shows the way that these fellows were able to combine NOLA jazz with soul and create something completely otherworldly.

While Wardell and Willie Tee may both be gone from this place, there music will live on. And on.

Don't be a square: DIG QUEZERGUE!

from 1965...

ah, divshare never fails to deliver the goods - or p'raps not... here's what bothers them today :
"This file is unavailable until Sep. 11, 2011 because the uploader's account has reached its download limit. You can access it immediately with a DivShare account!"

weren't it somewhat time you switched to a decent file host? 't is not the first time in recent history that divshare plays the fool, if memory serves me.

but i hasten to say that your site is among the best - the rips, the background info, the historic interest of the music you so graciously provide : all tops. thx - and enjoy the honeymoon!
