Mud Morganfield has grown into a superstar on the blues circuit.

Certainly, there will be comparisons to his dad, but that can be expected and rightly so.

Recently, footage appeared in the television show “Hugh Laurie – Copper Bottom Blues” – here. Mud was honoured to have been nominated in the Best Album and the Traditional Blues Male Artist Album categories of the 2013 Blues Foundation Blues Music Awards here.

His last album, (2014), a tribute to his dad that featured harmonica great Kim Wilson, was showcased on National Public Radio and garnered a Blues Music Award nomination for Traditional Album of the Year.

Rick Kreher describes the music on the new disc as “a blues buffet, with something for everyone.

In August 2012, Mud appeared on stage in Chicago with British actor and Blues icon Hugh Laurie.

But, Mud was also brought up musically in the ‘70s and ‘80s when soul, Motown and R&B ruled the world.

Mud played bass and performed with bands playing the hits of that era.

’ We have a couple of Chicago blues stompers, ‘Walkin’ Cane’ and ‘Rough Around the Edge;’ a great minor blues, ‘48 Days,’ with Billy Flynn channeling the great Jimmy Johnson on guitar; a Stax groove on ‘Oh Yeah;’ and Mike Wheeler again getting funky on ‘24 Hours.’ “Then, to honor his dad once again we have Muddy’s slide guitar blues, ‘Howlin’ Wolf,’ and the roaring shuffle, ‘Can’t Get No Grindin’,’ where everyone takes a solo turn.

And finally, a jazzy instrumental, ‘Mud’s Groove,’ featuring the great Billy Branch on harp.

A few weeks later, a Chicago blues club was having their annual musicians Christmas luncheon and there was this guy who certainly looked like Muddy.
