1972 Concert Finds Muddy Waters in Good Form!
Part of Norman Granz's Jazz at the Philharmonic series, Paris, 1972 features a
live performance in the City of Lights by one of the biggest name in Blues: the
great Muddy Waters.
Backed by an all-star band (Pinetop Perkins on piano, Calvin Jones on bass,
Willie Smith on drums, Mojo Buford on harmonica, and Louis Meyers on guitar),
Waters performs his biggest hits of the day, including "Rollin' and Tumblin,'"
"I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man" and "Got My Mojo Working." With impressive
musicianship, and the quirks that make a live record unique, Paris, 1972 is a
must-have for any fan of Muddy Waters.
"...as a document of latter-day Waters...this is some pretty great stuff."
