Memphis Slim And Willie Dixon - Aux Trois Mailletz
In 1962, the legendary blues pianist Memphis Slim left America for good
and settled in Paris. That same year, he began a regular gig at a club
called the Trois Mailletz, a job he was to hold until 1973. This LP was
recorded in his first month at the club, during a visit from his old
friend Willie Dixon, the great blues songwriter and bassist. The
atmosphere that night was genial and relaxed as the two men traded
songs back and forth. While their singing never reached the passion of
the earlier records from the 1940s and '50s, Memphis Slim's hard-driving
piano and Dixon's thumping bass made up for the lack of vocal fire.
Most of the songs tend to be on the obscure side, but even minor efforts
