    Default Professor Longhair

    One of my local favorites... was able to see him at Tip's in Nawlins,
    years ago...

    Tuts Washington... never saw him, but another ivory tickler that will blow your socks off, imho.

    I'd add links, but I am to newww.

    Default Professor Longhair

    Have you ever checked out the video "Piano Players Rarely Ever Play Together" by Stevenson Palfi? It features Professor Longhair, Tuts Washington, and Allen Toussaint. It was filmed in 1980 just before Longhair died. Great video. I think it's only available in VHS format.

    It was later restored and offered as a DVD, I think in 2012 - but has since gone out of print and is very hard to find except at what I consider prohibitively expensive prices.

    Fess was great.

    I love Professor Longhair - a keystone of the New Orleans sound. There's some good stuff on Youtube of him playing with the Meters and Dr John in the early 70's, on some TV special.

    Also, The Shuffling Hungarians was a great name for a backing band!
