Charlie Musselwhite – Tennessee Woman

The addition of jazz pianist Skip Rose gave a new dimension to the ensemble sound, and provided a perfect foil to Charlie’s own soloing — especially on the re-take of “Cristo Redentor,” extended to 11 minutes, shifting to double-time in spots. Rose’s instrumental, “A Nice Day for Something,” is a welcome change of pace, and Musselwhite’s “Blue Feeling Today” compares favorably to fine covers of Little Walter and Fenton Robinson tunes.
