OTIS SPANN & LITTLE JOHNNIE JONES
Otis Spann & Little Johnnie Jones, two of the acknowledged masters of Chicago Blues piano, were cousins who lived in Jackson in the 1930's and 40's. On the vibrant post-World War II Chicago scene they both played with blues king Muddy Waters and other luminaries and were hailed for their stellar work both as accompanist and as featured recording artist.
