Jay Mcshann and Jimmy Witherspoon

When pianist Jay McShann joins famous blues-shouter Jimmy Witherspoon on stage, it will be a jazz/blues meeting of historical impact! Now at the ripe old age of 80, Jay McShann gave Charlie Parker his first chance in 1937 when he invited him to play with his orchestra in Kansas City, a Mecca for music at the time. His incredible performance at the 1986 Festival will long be fondly remembered. Spoon is a bluesman whose voice is his only instrument. But what a voice! His renown goes back to the same Kansas City days of Jay McShann, and he will perform with his old partner in crime in this exceptional Piano Plus concert, where the mood will be easy-going, with warm vocal blues accompanied by a pianist who has been there and back. A great evening indeed!
