4.0 out of 5 stars Longhair Blues June 24, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The influence of New Orleans style music upon blues is obvious through many musicians. Nowhere is it more apparent than through the music of Professor Longhair. This Caribbean-flavored piano-master shines on this excellent compilation. This is an excellent choice for anyone who likes New Orlean's style Blues.
