Peter Malick is coming "home" to Boston for a few select shows this summer. Peter started his blues journey just after he graduated high school at which time he moved in with Muddy Waters piano player, Otis Spann. Malick played guitar behind Spann until he passed. Malick played on and released a recording of Spann's last show in Boston, Live at the Tea Party, Last Call. http://www.allmusic.com/album/last-call-live-at-boston-tea-party-april-2-1970-mw0000106046
Recently I was visiting with David Maxwell and he recounted that he and Peter Malick had backed John Lee Hooker on the Dick Cavett Show in 1969. Maxwell lamented that all his pals and contemporaries were at Woodstock at the time! Don't be shocked if Mr. Maxwell shows up to sit in, not that I heard anything!! His youthful talent as a guitarist led to stints backing up such blues legends as John Lee Hooker, Otis Spann, Big Mama Thornton, and Muddy Waters. After serving as guitarist and musical director for the national touring company of the Broadway musical Hair in the early 1970s, he joined the James Montgomery Band and appeared on two of the group's albums, First Time Out (1973) and High Roller(1974). More recently, Malick has produced scores of meaningful artists including Norah Jones. Malick proved to be Jone's guitarist of choice on a number of her releases.
Update: David Maxwell has signed on to perform a solo set between the two full band sets!
