LOUIS "KING LOUIE" PAIN--Dubbed "Portland's boss of the B-3" by The Oregonian, Louis originally hails from San Francisco. Coming up in the Bay Area, Louis played and recorded with a wide variety of top musicians, including members of Tower of Power, the Ray Charles Orchestra, Santana, Steely Dan, the Doobie Bros., the Edwin Hawkins Singers, and B.B. King. After moving north in '86, Louis continued the trend, working with top local jazz, blues, and soul artists as well as with visiting legends including Martha Reeves, Solomon Burke, Phil Upchurch, and Bernard “Pretty” Purdie. Louis' albums available @ cdbaby include recordings made with some of Portland's musical legends, including Sweet Baby James, "Portland's Ray Charles"; former Motown staff drummer Mel Brown, "Oregon's Gentleman of Jazz"; and Linda Hornbuckle, "NW Legendary Soul Diva."
