Good Morning Mr. Blues

Original Recording Format: Analog

The recordings on this album were made in 1962 in Copenhagen for the Storyville label while Spann was on tour with Muddy Waters. They represent Spann in an unusual setting for him – unaccompanied or in duet with a single supporting guitar. In this set, Spann interprets both blues standards and his own originals. Many of these originals have the aspect of spurof- the-moment improvisations, which testifies to his mercurial gift as a pure blues story-teller. Because the clarity of both the recording and the sparseness of the accompaniment, this album constitutes one of the most valuable documents currently available of the Chicago style of blues piano playing at its best
