Music by Eubie Blake
Lyrics by Noble Sissle, Andy Razaf, F.E. Miller, Jim Europe, and Micki Grant

In 1978 two African-American musicals opened on Broadway within months of each other – the first, Ain’t Misbehavin’, was a tribute to the songs of Fats Waller. The second, Eubie!, was a tribute to the songs of the great Eubie Blake.

Eubie! was conceived and directed by Julianne Boyd, with choreography by Billy Wilson and Henry LeTang. Boyd assembled a great cast, which included the Hines brothers, Gregory and Maurice, Alaina Reed, Lynnie Godfrey, Terry Burrell, and other terrific singers and dancers. The show was nominated for three Tony Awards – Gregory Hines for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical, Billy Wilson and Henry LeTang for Best Choreography, and, most interestingly, for Best Original Score (that probably couldn’t happen these days).

The musical arrangements by musical supervisor Danny Holgate are incredible and musical director Vicki Carter leads what can only be called a totally kick-ass band. But the star of the show, always front and center, is Eubie Blake and his songs. His amazing melodies are tuneful and infectious and they’re performed by a stellar cast with incredible voices energy. It all adds up to a toe-tapping delight from start to finish. And in a lovely bit of serendipity to the release of this wonderful cast album making its CD debut, a show about the making of Blake’s groundbreaking musical, Shuffle Along, is about to open.

Eubie! was mastered from the original master tapes from the Warner Bros./Rhino vaults and sounds incredible. -KRITZERLAND
