Singer/pianist Professor Longhair is the godfather of New Orleans R&B; his early recordings defined the style, setting the pace not just for pianists from James Booker to Dr. John, but for countless Crescent City soul/blues singers. Over the course of its two discs, THE PRIMO COLLECTION offers some of Longhair's most iconic tunes, the ones that cemented his legend, like the wailing, rollicking "Tipitina," and the funky "Hadacol Bounce." Second-line rhythms and pure blues piano licks melded like never before in Longhair's music, and you can hear it all happen right here.
