BABY WASHINGTON - THERE HE IS
Producer Bert Berns was a master of drama, which was a perfect vehicle for the range of Baby Washington's voice. Baby's (Jeanette) voice could go from low and sultry to high and punchy at the roll of a tympani, which arranger Bert Keyes has laid out so powerfully on this track. So much genius is happening on the backing track; just listen to the piano, delicately playing triplets while the drums go wild, the backing vocals soar and the strings swirl like a carnival.
