Legendary blues singer Jimmy “Spoon” Witherspoon, one of the premiere blues musicians of the post-WWII era, is immortalized in this exclusive DVD. Witherspoon became the vocalist for Jay McShann's band, which also featured T-Bone Walker and Big Joe Turner, during which time they recorded numerous hits, such as “Ain't Nobody's Business,” “Times Gettin' Tougher Than Tough,” and “Big Fine Girl,” which exemplified his unique style as a “blues shouter.” Featuring jazz guitarist John Collins & jazz sax great Marshall Royal, among others, this DVD features Witherspoon's authentic, honest songs and emotional vocal styling that propelled him from his humble beginnings into a genuine musical icon. Songs include: Good Morning Blues • Confessin' the Blues • Roll 'Em Pete • Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out • Jitterbug Waltz • Everyday I HAve the Blues • Money's Getting Cheaper • Goin' Down Slow • Goin' to Chicago • Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do • Dearly Beloved • Till Tomorrow • You Got Me Runnin'. 1 hour.
