The Question

How could such a great talent could get stuck recording for small Louisiana labels? It's a mystery to me, but then again, the same or similar could be said for a number of other great artists.

I buy everything of Bobby Powell's I can find and have yet to be disappointed.

I tend to disagree with those who assume all of his early sides were recorded in Baton Rouge, but then that's just my opinion. I've no proof otherwise. My ears simply tell me it ain't so and I usually trust them.

After all, how hard is it to drive the seventy odd miles between Baton Rouge and New Orleans?
