'My Kind Of Blues' was recorded for the label in 1961 (just as Cooke was launching his own SAR Records imprint), being a collection of show tunes and jazz standards, delivered
in a soulful blues style by Cooke atop lush orchestration, arranged and conducted by trumpeter and bandleader Sammy Lowe. Highlights include a soave version of Duke Ellington's 'I'm Just A Lucky So And So,' a cool cut of 'Nobody Loves You When You're Down And Out,' a stirring take of George Gerschwin's 'But Not For Me' and a lovely rendition of Irving Berlin's 'The Song Is Ended.'
