Nellie Luther & Her Rhythm

He's a Real Gone Guy

From Lake Charles, LA, pianist and singer Nellie Lutcher had many hits after WWII and into the 1950's. She wrote most of them and plays spectacular piano on all of them! Her singing and diction was unusual and she seems to have been a significant influence on Nina Simone. Here is one she wrote (still shows at ASCAP) that is a favorite, and was also much covered as a vocal and an instrumental in the 1950's
