Reseña de álbum

Late blooming blues/boogie singer/pianist Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne was born in Spokane, Washington in 1944 and grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana, San Francisco, California, and Los Angeles, California, but he has been based in Vancouver, British Columbia since the early '80s, which helps explain his three-LP association with the Canadian Electro-Fi label and his switch to Alberta roots indie Stony Plain Records for An Old Rock on a Roll. Stony Plain assigned him to label blues producer/guitarist Duke Robillard, who handled this lively set, matching Wayne with bassist Brad Hallen, drummer Mark Teixeira, and a four-man horn section. All the songs are Wayne originals, which is to say, the pianist has come up with his own lyrics, although the tunes and arrangements have been familiar in blues and boogie circles for the better part of a century. Even the lyrics are in familiar form, as Wayne bemoans the vicissitudes of a "Devil Woman" and explores the virtues of a life spent in bars. What matters, of course, is his powerful, heavily rhythmic playing, which has a lot of New Orleans in it, but predates rock & roll, despite the album title, and his professed love of Chuck Berry sideman Johnny Johnson and Fats Domino.

This is not an album to come to looking for something new, but rather it presents a reconfirmation of how much can still be made out of bluesy, barrelhouse piano playing by a master.

Kenny Wayne grew up in the midst of a sharp musical dichotomy, thanks to parents whose tastes were wildly divergent. His preacher father told him to stay on the straight and narrow path, and at all times to avoid "the Devil's music," a classification that included boogie-woogie. His mom, however, was thoroughly taken with everything about boogie-woogie. As a self-taught musician, it was all she could play. She especially favored Amos Milburn's "One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer," while she also exposed...
