WILLIE TEE - ALWAYS ACCUSED


Willie Tee (Turbinton) was one of the many geniuses of New Orleans music. He was also incredibly accomplished at a young age; his debut single, presented today, was cut when he was all of 18 years old!

Tee combined jazz with r&b in a brilliant way, and it was a pairing that was quite natural. There was no pretension to his music; Willie used his jazz ability to make incredibly sophisticated music that swung with harmonic complexity that seemed simple.

Willie's records got stronger over time, but I love the charm of this single. Tee's voice is already fully developed and strong, there's plenty of attitude, and the horn chart is pure NOLA.

from 1962...
