St. Louis blues (music)

St. Louis blues is a type of blues music. It is usually more piano-based than other forms of the blues, and is closely related to the jump blues, ragtime and piano blues. Typically, a small number of singers, a pianist and a few other musical instruments (used primarily for rhythm) make up a band.[1]
