Dinah Washington – Big Long Slidin’ Thing (1954)

After the genius of Louis Jordan, it’s worth staying in 1954 to take in this classic piece of jazz/blues from Dinah Washington.

Now, I need to be frank. A large number of remarkably smutty tracks were recorded in the late 1940s and early 1950s. In many of these, the subtlety of a double-entendre was jettisoned for the “single-entendre”.

However, as it’s a Sunday, I’ve tried to steer well clear of this tradition of sniggering innuendo.

Instead, here’s a straightforward tale of a woman missing her boyfriend who happens to play the trombone.
