OLIVER SAIN ST. LOUIS BREAKDOWN-BEST OF OLIVER SAIN
OLIVER SAIN was the single most influential musician in the St. Louis area from 1960 to his death in 2003; no one had as great an impact as this bandleader/songwriter/producer/studio owner in nearly a half-century of dominance. But beyond his hometown, Sain gained international respect and admiration for his distinctive sound as an alto saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist.
Yes, he wrote material for which others (Fontella Bass, Ann Peebles) achieved chart hits, with a telling gift for crafting songs for female vocalists (blues singer Tracy Nelson has been quoted as saying his song “Walk Away” being as fine a lyric ever written for a woman), and always had the best working band St. Louis could boast, but as a soloist in the blues/soul/funk realm, only Maceo Parker is comparable as having such a signature sound and original tone. His influence on no less than St. Louis native David Sanborn is obvious, and the recordings on St. Louis Breakdown show a master of the studio world framing his great playing over original compositions as well as songs by others that became so transformed by Oliver, his versions are arguably definitive. Specifically, his stirring, strutting version of ‘Soul Serenade’ was a rallying cry for his fans in our city----his four-note introduction to this King Curtis number would evoke standing ovations and cheers at the shows and club appearances he made throughout his career.
We are so proud of making available again the music of Oliver Sain, a man we admired and loved as one does your best of friends. PERHAPS one day, our city will posthumously recognize this cultural icon; in the meantime, listen to his music, and be amazed and gladdened. Give a listen, and you will understand.

Rick Wood's Concert Diary - Vol. 96
9/17/10 Big Smith, George’s, Fayetteville, AR. Our whole family made the six hour drive to Fayetteville for the wedding of some good friends (almost family), arriving in the late afternoon. The early part of the evening was spent at a dinner get-together of friends and family from in and out of town. From there, Nancy took the boys back to the hotel while I caught a ride with a few people down to a bar on Dickson Street. Things were set up so that admission was free to those attending the wedding festivities (the password to the doorman was “Xanax”).
George’s is a decent-sized live music club (Lucinda W is playing here Sunday night) with no room for a proper green room, so they’ve set up a trailer in the parking lot out back. That’s where we met up with the band right before they went on in front of
