March 20 brings Son of the Seventh Son, the Severn
label debut from Chicago’s
Larry “Mud” Morganfield, son of the legendary Muddy Waters, aka McKinley
Morganfield. Recorded in Chicago and produced by Bob Corritore, Son of the Seventh Son features
Mud Morganfield’s earthy, soulful vocals backed by a cadre of blues all-stars,
including Kenny Smith on drums, Rick Kreher and Billy Flynn on guitar,
Barrelhouse Chuck on keyboards, E.G. McDaniel on bass, and Harmonica Hines and
Bob Corritore on harp.

 

Son
of the Seventh Son
includes
seven Mud Morganfield originals, as well several other new tunes and a couple
songs associated with his famous dad, such as “You Can’t Lose What You Ain’t
Never Had.” Producer Bob Corritore calls his sound “a contemporary version of
traditional Chicago
blues.”

“There’s two songs of pop’s on
there and with anything I do, I’m gonna add pop,” Morganfield told reporters.
“But the rest of the disc is made up of several songs that I wrote, along with
a song that Bob Corritore wrote and one my good friend Studebaker John wrote.
But it’s all got that Muddy style to it, because that’s who I am. Without me even
trying, I come off like the son of Muddy Waters and I’m proud that it’s like
that.”
