In the late 1970’s, the short-lived Blues Ball record label released a compilation of tough Chicago blues featuring some of the greatest slide guitarists that the Windy City ever produced, including Robert Nighthawk, Johnny Littlejohn and Hound Dog Taylor.

The title of the album, “Sultans of Slide Guitar”, captured Franck Goldwasser’s imagination. Goldwasser, an art student and passionate blues guitar devotee from Paris, France, took notice and proceeded to pour his heart and soul into this music which was to become his life’s work.

In 1983 Goldwasser dropped out of art school and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to pursue his musical aspirations. Having received the stage name “Paris Slim” from Oakland musician/club owner Troyce Key, Goldwasser spent the next twenty-five years playing and recording under his own name and as a backup guitarist for some of the most prestigious names in contemporary blues, including Percy Mayfied, Big Mama Thornton and Charlie Musselwhite.

Positive response from Rose City audiences over the years convinced Paris Slim to move to Portland in 2005. With a strong live music scene and residents such as Paul Delay, Curtis Salgado and Lloyd Jones, Portland could boast of being a towering center of blues music in the United States.
