O’s Notes: The late Luther Allison was one of the most electric blues performers ever. He was able to engage his audience and make them feel his emotions. No one every left one of his concerts feeling disappointed and many times he expanded his audience. This live performance occurred at the Montreal Jazz Festival June 1997, a month before Allison died. He’s in top form performing ten selections, six of his own. We enjoyed “Cancel my Check”, “Will It Ever Change” and “Living in The House of Blues”. There is also a DVD with seven selections notably “Move From the Hood”. Seeing is believing. Watching the video takes this experience to the stratosphere.
