French born guitarist Franck L. Goldwasser, aka “Paris Slim,” became enamored with American blues music as a teenager and worked to hone his craft before being discovered by renowned harmonica player Sugar Blue and California bluesman Sonny Rhodes, who brought him to the West Coast. Settling there in the 1980’s Goldwasser worked with a who’s who of the Bay Area’s most prestigious residents.

His new album “Who Needs This Mess!!??”, the title track of which features musical cohorts Charlie Musselwhite, Sugaray Rayford and Kirk Fletcher, is scheduled for release in July 2023 on CrossCut Records.

Like his storied career, the fifteen-track collection features a star-studded cast of friends, on a journey that flows over the musical landscape that grew out of the blues and his love for the guitar.
