The story of the Paino Blues is largely one of unsung heroes and a music mostly forgotten but richly varied, intense and exciting.
It's a music forged in the smoky heat of the barrelhouses of the levee, lumber, turpentine and railroad camps of Louisiana and Texas and the whorehouses of New Orleans and other southern cities. Not a polite music; it is rough and ready accompaniment beaten out to the rhythms of drinking, dancing, gambling and dangerous lovemaking. Acrobat. 2003.
