In the early 1970s blues singer Jimmy Witherspoon (1920-1997) was touring with just a guitar player to back him when he agreed to let guitarist and saxophonist Robben Ford (b.1951) and his band join him for a gig in Palo Alto, California. The chemistry worked and the group became Witherspoon's permanent touring band, culminating in the classic 1972 performance at the Monterey Jazz Festival captured on this album. 1 CD duration 47 min.
