weirdovideo.com: Master 'shout blues' artist Big Joe Turner marks another high point of his career here with "Shake, Rattle & Roll."
Although Bill Haley's later sanitized version became a top rock-n-roller hit, it's said many folks sought out Turner's version instead.
A pivotal figure in popularizing blues, jazz, classic R&B, and rock and roll, Turner's career lasted from the 1920's busking on the streets of Kansas City through the 1980's at the most lauded jazz festivals in America and Europe.
