Ruth Brown: Fine and Mellow
Kirk Silsbee, Fantasy Records, June 1991
FRANK OWENS, arranger/pianist and strawboss of the music on this album, was running down his chart to the band at Sage and Sound in Hollywood when Ruth Brown first walked into the studio. She quickly surveyed the room and said with mock indignation, "Frank, you hired a lotta old men for my session!"
