This collection is titled “Come See About Me,” which has nothing to do with the Holland-Dozier-Holland hit made indelible by the Supremes and everything to do with a line from “I Ate Up the Apple Tree,” the title song of a 1975 album by Dave “Fat Man” Williams, who was once the Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s pianist. You can hear that song at many parades, as Elmore did. But she first learned it from trumpeter James Andrews, who has been called the Satchmo of the Ghetto, in reference to the Tremé neighborhood that Elmore called home for two years.
