Muddy Waters/Clark Terry: Stormy Monday Blues (Nice, 1977)
Here is another clip from the same TV series (La Grande Parade Du Jazz) that the Gatemouth Brown clip comes from. This time you get the Muddy Waters Blues band featuring guest trumpeter Clark Terry playing T-Bone Walker’s classic “Stormy Monday Blues”. This was filmed in Nice, Southern France on July 10, 1977. Besides Clark Terry, Muddy’s band consists of Bob Margolin (eg), Guitar Junior (e.g.), Pinetop Perkins (p), Calvin Jones (eb) and Willy “Big Eyes” Smith (dr). Harmonica player Jerry Portnoy was also a member of Muddy’s band at that time, but he is not featured in this number.
