Johnny Beaudine and Deep Blue - House of Jazz - "They Call Me Big Mama"
Here's a video shot during a show we did at the House of Jazz on May 3. This video features Sylvia Harris on vocals and Jeff Simons on drums as well as myself on tenor sax, Peter Mika on piano and Gary McKenzie on bass.
We were doing a tribute to Big Mama Thorton, organized by Doudou Boicel of Rising Sun fame, hence the tune, "They Call Me Big Mama".
