Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

Ms Willis gave a stirring performance without a lot of movement but a lot of voice. With a trilby hat jammed tight on her head and horn-rimmed specs she bore no resemblance to the photos on the LP covers adorning the walls. However the voice did!
I didn't catch the names of all of the Investigators but they were masters of their craft. Tom Quilliam, as well as putting in a shift on slide, also played some tasty flute. Trumpet switched to flugel as the occasion demanded and the keyboard man played some of the wildest organ this side of Preston (Billy) as well as flipping out on bongos, congos and other 'gos.
The crowd loved it and the dance floor wasn't deserted!
Nice one Warren - keep 'em coming!
(Maybe more photos to follow...)
Lance.
