Unholy Blues Jam: T-Bone Walker / Joe Turner / Otis Spann / George 'Harmonica' Smith

This was a great get together for the blues; imagine some of the blues legends gathered alongside for a jam... 

In 1969, Bluestime Records released an album of it's latest roster called Super Black Blues... gathering guitar legend T-Bone Walker, pianist extraordinaire Otis Spann, the blues boss vocalist Joe Turner, and harmonica pillar George 'Harmonica' Smith into the studio and released a 4 track, loose and extended jam session.

The results, alongside bassist Ron Brown, drummer Paul Humphrey, sax player Ernie Watts, and guitarist/arranger Arthur Wright, kick serious ass. Everyone is cool as ice... deepest of the blues.

Here's 'Jot's Blues' from that classic album:
