Barcode: 5060149622025

Catalog no.: CJS0009025

Item ID: 405671

Edition on 180-gram vinyl. 'Walking The Blues' is arguably the finest record Otis Spann ever cut, boasting 11 cuts of astounding blues piano. On several numbers, Spann is supported by guitarist Robert Jr. Lockwood and their interaction is sympathetic, warm, and utterly inviting. Spann relies on originals here, from 'Half Ain't Been Told' to 'Walking The Blues,' but he also throws in a few standards ('Goin' Down Slow,' 'My Home Is In the Delta') that help draw a fuller portrait of his musicianship. Most importantly, however, is the fact that 'Walking The Blues' simply sounds great -- it's some of the finest blues piano you'll ever hear.
