------------------------------------

Portland-based organ player Louis “King Louie” Pain, one of the most soulful sitting at the console today, directs the spontaneous big fun of a gig in Bend, Oregon. Veterans Andy Stokes and LaRhonda “Portland’s First Lady of the Blues” Steele set their vocals strongly in the intermixed blues, soul, jazz and r&b instrumentals of a specially assembled band that includes venerable Bay Area trombonist Danny Armstrong and bassist-singer-songwriter Lisa Mann. The set takes a provocative turn with ultra-sensual songs by James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Willie Dixon and B.B. King. —Frank-John Hadley, Downbeat, February 2018 (4-star review)

------------------------------------

“For fifty-five minutes and fifty-three seconds, this Blues Revue laid everything on the line to thrill the crowd with blues and jazz standards and three originals…Live at Riverhouse Jazz, from Louis Pain and posse, shows how 'King Louie' earned his name!” —Rainey Wetnight, Blues Blast

------------------------------------

“Boy, did Louis Pain ever put together something magical…Live At Riverhouse Jazz is one of those exciting moments on stage where everybody is bringing their best and then some. If you have attended one of these shows, you’re going to smile from the memories retained from being there. For those who have not, this is going to be the next best thing until you can make it to one yourself.”

—Greg Johnson, Blues Notes, Cascade Blues Association

------------------------------------

Over the half-decade that Marshall Glickman has been putting on classy jazz shows in Bend, Oregon, I’ve been his go-to guy to assemble funky blues/soul all-star line-ups.  It’s been a real treat for me to play with “dream bands” made up of my favorite musicians, and this year was no exception.  In fact, I’d say that the show captured on this recording topped them all for sheer fun and spontaneity.  Of course, when you assemble artists and human beings the calibre of the folks on this CD and put them in front of a great audience, it’s bound to be fun.  We didn’t over-think things; we just picked some of our favorite blues & soul tunes and let the good times roll.  As you’ll hear, the audience was ecstatic; I hope you will be too!

—Louis "King Louie" Pain (from the CD liner notes)

-------------------------------------

"Hammond B3 maestro, Louis Pain works as 'King Louie' and if you're familiar with his work, you'll understand why he justifies the royal epithet! Consistently his recordings are joyous celebrations of old school soul, blues and soul-jazz. If you're not familiar with his work, may we point you to this, his latest release...'Live At Riverhouse Jazz' is a spontaneous, fun-filled celebration of old style soul, blues and funk."

—William Buckley, Soul and Jazz and Funk (4/5 stars)

-------------------------------

“If you love old soul and funk you need to hear King Louie’s Blues Revue.”

—Richard Ludmerer, Making a Scene!
