Piano blues

Piano blues is a catch-all term for blues genres that are structured around the piano as the primary musical instrument. Boogie woogie is one of the best known styles of piano blues.[1] Swing, R&B, rock and roll and jazz are strongly influenced by blues piano.[2] Notable blues pianists include Roosevelt Sykes, Memphis Slim, Otis Spann, Sunnyland Slim, Pinetop Perkins, Dr. John, and Ray Charles.[3]
