Professor Longhair: No Buts, No Maybes - Hot In New Orleans! - The 1949-1957 Recordings (CD)

(Soul Jam Records) 28 tracks

Henry Roeland Byrd, aka Professor Longhair (also known as "Baldhead" or "Fess"), remains one of Louisiana's best-known piano talents.

He is often referred to as the father of New Orleans R&B. His funky, rumba-based piano style and delightfully deep and wild voice enlivened nightclubs and festivals. He wrote some of the most captivating songs the world has ever known - expressive music that is virtually unparalleled in its sheer joy. This best-of collection gathers a variety of the great R&B recordings he made for various labels including Atlantic, Mercury, Federal and Ebb Records between 1949 and 1957. The recordings showcase a 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.

"Professor Longhair"

Professor Longhair, next to Fats Domino, must rank as New Orleans' most influential musician. Born Henry Roeland Byrd in Bogalusa, Louisiana, on Dec. 18, 1918, his family moved to New Orleans when he was still a child.

He soon picked up the wonderfully diverse styles of the old pianists who used to play the clubs and clip joints, and moulded them into his unique way of playing, with Spanish and rhumba accents predominating. He made his first record in 1949 for Star Talent as Professor Longhair and the Shuffling Hungarians and in 1950 'Bald Head' on Mercury was his one and only record to dent the R&B charts. Records for Atlantic, Federal, Wasco, Ebb, Rip and Watch flopped badly although his 1959 Ron recording of 'Go To The Mardi Gras' still sells well every year at New Orleans' annual blow-out.

He was out of work for much of the Sixties, but there has been a welcome revival of interest in his music of late, which has led to many live appearances and a visit to Europe.
