Isadore "Tuts" Washington was one of the last of the New Orleans piano "professors," with musical roots that extended back to turn-of-the-century Storyville. Though he recorded as part of Smiley Lewis' band in the `50s and his influence on such musicians as Professor Longhair and Fats Domino is widely acknowledged, this is the only album Tuts ever recorded under his own name. The solo piano selections range from lowdown blues to jazz standards. Also included is one vocal, the risque "Papa Yellow Blues."
