2010 collection from the New Orleans legend. Henry Roeland Byrd, AKA Professor Longhair, remains one of the most recognizable piano talents to come out of Louisiana. He is often referred to as the father of New Orleans R&B. His funky, rumba-based piano style and delightfully deep and wild-edged voice livened up nightclubs and festivals spanning four decades. He made some of the most captivating songs the world has ever known: expressive music that is virtually unrivaled for it's pure joy. This best-of collection gathers a variety of the great R&B recordings he made for different labels such as Atlantic, Mercury, Federal and Ebb Records between 1949 and 1957. These recordings also feature a virtual who's who of fabulous musicians from the Crescent City scene, including Earl Palmer, Lee Allen, Alvin Red Tyler, Justin Adams and Charles Hungry Williams, among others.
