Not only is Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne one of our foremost contemporary blues and boogie pianists, he's also extraordinarily well-versed on his chosen genre's proud history. Blues from Chicago to Paris pays rousing tribute to two of Chicago's postwar blues legends, piano-pounding Memphis Slim and bass-slapping powerhouse Willie Dixon. Focused in particular on the period when the two giants of the genre teamed up to tour the globe during the late 1950s and early '60s, the album presents a well-rounded collection of favorite songs as well as those innovative tunes that have inspired and influenced blues players ever since.

"Memphis Slim and Willie Dixon were a team, and their styles worked great together," says Kenny. "Out of many other blues piano players that I've listened to, I found a playfulness between these two men unlike the many other great blues pianists." - Kenny Blues Boss Wayne

Legendary blues piano master Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne was inducted into the Boogie Woogie Piano Hall of Fame in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2017. He is recognized by Living Blues Magazine for his six-decade career of bringing the piano back to the front ranks of contemporary blues. This Juno Award winner, WCMA winner and multiple Maple Blues Award winner is at the forefront of modern day blues piano.

Press Quotes

The award winning standard bearer of post war blues still knows how to boogie hard enough to teach the young uns a thing or two. Paying tribute to Memphis Slim and Willie Dixon on this fatly tracked set, the chops and the charm merge in a most tasty way here. Spry as anything at 77, Wayne is the real deal that could deliver the goods in his sleep. Glad to see he was wide awake here. Hot stuff throughout.

     —Chris Spector, Midwest Record

Wayne had this to say about the 17-track tribute record, "Memphis Slim and Willie Dixon were a team, and their styles worked great together. Out of many other blues piano players I've listened to, I found a unique playfulness between these two men, unlike the many other great blues pianists."

     —Michael Anguilia, Anti Music

It’s much deserved high praise from Robillard for this kind, humble, grounded artist who has lovingly recreated this classic American music on Blues from Chicago to Paris, which is coming your way via Stony Plain Records, and making its way to stages from coast to coast and around the world.

     —The Sound Café

On this amazing 17 track album, he invited bassist Russell Jackson, a veteran of the B.B. King band during the 80s, and drummer Joey DiMarco into the studio for the session.

     —Oasis Entertainment
