Memphis Slim. An amazingly prolific artist who brought a brisk air of urban sophistication to his frequently stunning presentation, John "Peter" Chatman -- better known as Memphis Slim -- assuredly ranks with the greatest blues pianists of all time. He was smart enough to take Big Bill Broonzy's early advice about developing a style to call his.

Recorded in with a host of young blues and rock musicians, Blue Memphis isn't in the same league as Memphis Slim's early recordings for Chess or United, but it does hold up better than similar dates released by fellow blues artists in that era (e.g., Muddy Waters' Fathers and Sons or Howlin' Wolf's London Sessions).
