Memphis Slim in Montreux (1973)
snapshot from video
While digitizing the Donald Byrd footage from Montreux, I discovered a nice thirty minutes of video featuring blues piano legend Memphis Slim from the same festival. Since I synchronized the whole VHS cassette, I thought I might as well put it up on youtube as well. Memphis Slim is one of my favorite blues singers, and I hope you like this clip as much as I do.
Slim is accompanied by legendary session guitarist Mickey Baker, bassist Benny Turner and drummer Charles Meyers.
