In early childhood Evelyn McGee was a gifted and talented singer constantly being requested to sing at every important social event that took place in her home town of Anderson, South Carolinaa. At the age of nineteen she was invited to join the International Sweethearts of Rhythm as their featured vocalist. The International Sweethearts of Rhythm became the greatest all-female jazz dance band of its time. The Sweethearts were true headliners, topping bills that featured other singers such as Lena Horne and Billie Holiday. Evelyn sang before audiences across America and Europe with the sweethearts breaking attendance records wherever they performed.

Nearly five decades after her career began, McGee Stone's voice is as strong as ever; riding rhythms effortlessly and floating through emotions sweet, sad and sexy... Even younger fans today are rediscovering the rhythmic sophistication and lyrical shine of postwar, prerock rhythm 'n blues and jazz. It's My Time links the styles of those years with the touch of the 80's, through the voice of a woman who has lived through it all. - Thom Duffy, Billboard Magazine

Jesse Stone, Evelyn McGee's husband, is a legend in his own right. Jesse co-produced It's My Time and wrote 10 of the album's songs. Jesse has seen the music industry from every aspect, for over eight decades. Throughout the 20's, 30's and 40's Jesse was a well known jazz composer, arranger and band leader, with tunes such as the classic "Idaho" to his credit. In the late 40's and early 50's Jesse was a significant contributor to the birth and history of Rock 'n Roll. He was involved with Atlantic Records in the very beginning. Jesse (a/k/a Charles Calhoun) wrote such hits as "Shake, Rattle & Roll", "Razzle Dazzle", "Money Honey", "Smack Dab In The Middle", and "Don't Let Go". He industriously cultivated the artists and sounds of that remarkable era of early Rock 'n Roll. Jesse Stone has been an unparalleled creative force, shaping the music of our century. With this new album it is evident that Jesse's creative vision remains as clear and sharp as ever.
