    Personnel: Jimmy Witherspoon (vocals), Teddy Edwards (tenor saxophone), Gerald Wiggins (piano), John Clayton (bass), Paul Humphrey (drums)
    Recorded live at the Grand Avenue Bar, Los Angeles on October 24-25, 1988.
    This CD finds Jimmy Witherspoon at age 65 on one of his last fairly strong records before his voice began to really shrink and fade. Spoon, assisted on this live set by tenor saxophonist Teddy Edwards, pianist Gerald Wiggins, bassist John Clayton, and drummer Paul Humphrey, revives some of his hits, performs a pair of medleys, and emphasizes swinging blues and ballads. Highlights include "Sweet Lotus Blossom" (a standard whose authorship should not have been credited to Witherspoon), "Stormy Monday," and "I Want a Little Girl." Easily recommended to Jimmy Witherspoon fans. ~ Scott Yanow
