Shine A Light: Otis Spann

Do you like Blues music? If so, here’s a name you might be familiar with. I first heard Otis Spann’s recording of “Burning Fire” 30 years ago and it just blew me away. His smoky voice and awesome right hand on that piano is amazing and will stop you dead in your tracks to listen !

Jackson Mississippi native, Otis Spann spent most of his professional career as the piano player for Muddy Waters. Spann died way too early at 40 years old from liver cancer, but he left a wonderful musical legacy. Check him out, it’s the real deal !!!
