Mud Morganfield (from the album Portrait available on Delmark Records) (by Danny McCloskey)
Salvation strolls alongside Mud Morganfield when he opens his latest collection, Portrait, with the Gospel Blues of “Praise Him”. The Blues of Mud Morganfield is his own brand, borrowing from the Chicago Blues of dad Muddy Waters, mashing the sound with his own mix of Soul, R&B, and Motown that were part of the younger Morganfield’s influences. The spiritual pull of the album opener gets balanced as Mud Morganfield pontificates on the pleasures of “Short Dressed Women”, slowing the rhythm to a crawl when Portrait creeps into “Midnight Lover”, keeping the groove steamy to deliver the resume in “Son of a Seventh Son”, and high-steps to bid “Good Morning Little School Girl”.
Collecting all sides of Chicago Blues, Mud Morganfield packs Portrait with a blue Boogie heading down to New Orleans with “Loco Motor” as he steps into “Blues in My Shoes”, admitting “You Can’t Lose When What You Ain’t Never Had” on a simmering slow-cooker strut, tossing out a swaying line of rhythm for “Catfishing”, and confidently walking on the hammering beat message of “Money Can’t (Buy You Everything)”.
