Blue Plate Special 1997

This album actually began as a late-night jam session at Ornette Coleman's studio in Harlem and the first runthoughs sounded so good that david called up an old friend and collaborator from Toronto, Doug Riley, who is probably one of the best Hammond B2 players on the planet. The repertoire came from David's own musical heroes--men like Albert Collins, Ray Charles, Willie Dixon, and Freddie King provided downhome blues; Henry Glover and Percy Mayfield (two of the best songwriters in the history of Black American music) are also represented here. And David himself provided four of his own tunes, including a revised version of "Lucretia MacEvil," and a new song, "Wish the World Would Come To Memphis," that deserves to become a classic. on Jul 30, 13
