Mud Morganfield has been an indisputable staple of Chicago blues for the past three decades. His mere presence on the scene would justify that statement, but his significance goes further. He has never tried to escape from the reality that undoubtedly associates him to his father, among others the characteristic tone of voice and the structures of the songs, but Mud's professionalism has achieved his own personality that has placed him on his own merits as an indisputable blues figure of this century. Not only he has recorded unsurpassed quality albums , "Son Of The Seven Son" (2012), "The Blues Is In My Blood" (2013), or "They Call Me Mud" (2018), but his name has catalyzed the interest of fans around the world and his recurring hints to Muddy Waters have been understood as an inevitable deference to the greatest Chicago bluesman. Listening to him is an exercise in evaluating his wealth as a musician, a deep singer who does not speculate with easy clixes and throws himself with devotion and loyalty into the progress of songs that, I have no doubt, only he can face. About "Portrait" this new album released by Delmark Records , contains the twelve tracks from "Son Of The Seven Son" released by Severn Records, updated and remixed plus two unreleased ones, the introspective "Praise Him" and the closing title "Good Morning Little School Girl", bringing John Lee "Sonny Boy" Williamson's classic to the fore.
"I came up in Chicago and listened to Motown and Stax Records, The Temptations, Barry White and people like that. So that’s what I related to as a kid in the late Sixties and early Seventies. So that’s what I do. I keep an open mind. I don’t want to be associated only with what Dad did. I have to be me" (M.M. 2019)
