Otis Spann

Otis Spann was the wonderful pianist that backed up Muddy Waters in his band. But Otis was a very talented singer and musician in his own right and recorded possibly my favorite blues album, entitled "Live the Life". It's got a bunch of wonderful blues piano pieces and some of Muddy Waters best slide work, of course laced with Spann's wonderful singing.

And another Muddy video just for fun... Dunno if Otis is in on this one.
