There's a very inexpensive ($5 or $6) CD collection of Bessie Smith called "Bessie Smith" (brilliant, eh?) put out by TKO Records (I think they're Dutch)as their number UAE30502 in 1996. It has a rendition of Kitchen Man, and 16 other of her classics. Would be a good source, and cheap. This company has also put out collections of everyone from Big Bill Broonzy to Leadbelly to Gershwin (I have a nifty Glenn Miller playing right now). I picked it up in the cheapo bin at Caldor (a K-mart type discount chain in the northeast).

Lyr. Add: KITCHEN MAN

His jelly roll sure is nice and hot,
Never fails to touch the spot,
I can't do without my kitchen man.

His fine feathers are rolled so sweet,
How I love his young pig meat,
I can't do without my kitchen man.

Oh, how that boy does open clams,
No one else is gwine touch my hams,
I can't do without my kitchen man.

When I eat his doughnuts tall
I leave him just the hole,
Any time he wants them
he certainly can use my sugar pole.

His boloney's certainly worth a try,
Never fails to satisfy,
I can't do without my kitchen man.

Copyright Sara Martin, "Kitchen Man Blues," December 1928, QRS R-7043; also Riverside RLP 12-130. Also recorded by Bessie Smith.
"Purporting to be the song of a wealthy woman who has 'servants by the score', it appealed to 'Dan, her kitchen man' not to leave her household and described his merits in the 'kitchen'."
"Kitchen Man," ....is a piece of cabaret 'smut' clever in its verses and implicitly hypocritical in its outlook" (Martin Williams, 1959, "The Art of Jazz," Cassell, p. 91). Paul Oliver compares it unfavorably with the recording by the same Sara Williams of "Mean Tight Mama" QRS R-7043 and Riverside RLP 12-130.

Bessie's version does indeed start with a verse about "Having servants by the score" and :
"Dan, her kitchen man, gave in his notice one day" she begs him to reconsider then the rest as printed follow.

From: Roger the Skiffler

I can't find the written lyrics anywhere, only some closed or dead internet sites, but listening again to the record this is how I hear the lyrics. I won't post it as an LYR ADD message as Stewie or Masato may be able to correct my hearing of it.

KITCHEN MAN
(A.Razaf,/A.Bellenda)*

Madam Buff(?) was quite enough
Servants by the score
Footmen at each door
Butlers and maids galore
But one day Sam, her kitchen man
Gave her his notice he's through
She cried "Oh Sam don't go you'll grieve me if you do"

I love his cabbage gravy hash
Crazy 'bout his succotash
I can't do without my kitchen man

Wild about his turnip tops
Love the way he warms my chops
I can't do without my kitchen man

Oh his jelly roll is nice and hot,
Never fails to touch the spot,
I can't do without my kitchen man.

Anybody else can leave me I would only laugh
But he means to much to me
And you've only heard the half

His frankfurters are so sweet,
How I love his sausage meat,
I can't do without my kitchen man.

Oh, how that boy can open clams,
No one else is can touch my hams,
I can't do without my kitchen man.

When I eat his doughnuts
All I leave is the hole.
Any time he wants to
He can use my sugar bowl.

His baloney's certainly worth a try,
Never fails to satisfy,
I can't do without my kitchen man.

*(as recorded by Bessie Smith acc. by Clarence Williams pno, Eddie Lang gtr, NYC May 8th 1929)

Roger, there was a word in the Sara Williams lyrics printed in Oliver that didn't seem right; but the Smith version shows it was a misprint.
"He certainly can use my sugar pole" should be ".....bowl."

Roger, I do hear some minor differences. The recording I have is on 'Complete Recordings Vol 4' Columbia Legacy. Masato may have a published text. In this recording the 'Anybody else' stanza comes before the 'Oh his jelly roll' stanza. Maybe we are listening to different recordings, but the booklet gives the same recording date and info that you have given. Curious. Anyhow the differences I hear from your text above are below - I reckon we are listening to different takes:

St1, L1 'Madam Buff's was quite deluxe'

St1, L6 'Gave in his notice, he's through'

St1, L7   'She cried, 'Oh Sam, don't go, it'll grieve me if you do'

St2, L1   'I love his cabbage gravy, his hash'

St3,       'top' and 'chop' [singular]

St4, L1    'Anybody else could leave and I would only laugh'

St4, L4    'And you ain't heard the half'

St5, L1    'Oh his jell roll is so nice and hot'

St6, L1    'His frankfurters are oh so sweet'

St6, L2    'How I like his sausage meat'

St7         'Clam' and 'ham' [singular] 'touch could be 'catch'

St8, L4    'Why, he can use my sugar bowl'

St9, L1    'His baloney's really worth a try'


Regards, Stewie.

I agree all Stewie's hearings are possibles except, for context, I still reckon Clams and Hams should be plural and "catch" wouldn't make much sense. I think   chops and tops make more sense plural.

Roger, I totally agree that the plurals make more sense. I was just being literal and I definitely cannot hear any 's', particulary on 'clam' and 'ham'. You are right: she's probably singing 'touch' with a strange (to me) pronunciation.

Here are a basic set of chords for the song:



KITCHEN MAN
(Andy Razaf / Alex Bellenda)

(Bb)Madame Bucks was (F7)quite deluxe,
Servants by the (Bb)score, (Bb A7)
(Gm7)Footmans at each (Cm7)door,
(F7)Butlers and (F7)maids gal-(Bb)ore. (F7)
(Bb)But one day Dan, her (F7)kitchen man,
Gave in his notice he's (Bb)through. (A7)
(Dm7)She (Gm7)cried, (Dm)"Oh Dan, don't (Am7)go!
It'll (Gm7)grieve me (C7)if you (F7)do!"

(Bb)I love his cabbage, (Cm7)crave his (G7)hash,
(Cm7)Daffy about his succo-(F7)tash,
(Bb)I can't (G7)do with-(C7)out my kitchen (F7)man!

(Bb)Wild about his (Cm7)turnip (G7)tops,
(Cm7)Like the way he warms my (F7)chops,
(Bb)I can't (G7)do with-(C7)out my (F7)kitchen (Bb)man!

(Bb7)Anybody else could leave, and I would only (Bb)laugh!
(G7)But he means too much to me, and (C7)you ain't heard the (F7)half!

(Bb)Oh, his jelly roll is so (Cm7)nice and (G7)hot,
(Cm7)Never fails to touch the (F7)spot,
(Bb)I can't (G7)do with-(C7)out my (F7)kitchen (Bb)man.




Of course the effect is in the details, so here is a fuller set of chords, more like I would play.

I've tried to keep the bass notes on strings (5) and (6), the only exception being one run in the 2nd half of the first line of the bridge.

Chords are notated as follows:
* = bass on (5), ** = bass note on (4), otherwise the bass note is on (6).

Chord/N = Chord with note N in bass. If the root is the lowest note of the chord, only the chord name is given.

/N = only the bass note N is played

Left hand fingering is specified as the 6-digit list of frets (starting from bass string (6) to treble string (1)). x = string not used, 0=open string, A=10, B=11, C=12




KITCHEN MAN

(Bb)I can't (*G7/D)do (/Db)with-(*C9)out (/G)my (F7)kitchen (Bb)man. (*Eb Bb F7/C)

Chorus chords as above





This (apart from some twiddling and a few other passing chords) is the basic set I would use. If you don't want to play all of these, you can simplify as follows:

Ignore the /Bass specs (eg treat Cm7/Bb as Cm7, ignore /Db)
Anything with a number > 7 can be replaced with the 7the (eg replace Cm11 with Cm7)

Thanks Joe. It was no hardship to listen to a great recording.

As I was out walking the dog this morning, in the strange way that these things come to me, I realised that where I'd written Cm7/A above it should have read Cm6/A. The fingering is the same; only the name has been changed. (I don't usually think of the names until I have to write them down!).
