In 1972 Jimmy Witherspoon blew away the Monterey Jazz Festival with a line-up helmed by blues guitar master Robben Ford. On this live recording from that performance, Ford covers an impressive emotional gamut with his fretboard that matches Spoon's slow-burning soul vocals note for note. Rarely have two giants been so ably matched and MJF LIVE 1972 captures their bond at its creative peak.
