Good Morning Mr. Blues from Chicago pianist Otis Spann has been cherished by audiophiles over the decades since its initial LP release. Remastered with the proprietary 2xHD Fusion process, it is now available in all high-resolution formats. Recorded in Copenhagen for the Storyville label in 1962 while Spann was on tour with Muddy Waters, the material showcases the pianist in an unusual setting, unaccompanied or in duet with a single supporting guitar. Spann interprets blues standards and his own originals, many of which seem like spur-of-the-moment improvisations. Because of the clarity of both the sound and the sparseness of the accompaniment, the album constitutes a valuable document of Chicago blues piano at its finest.
