Papa Was A Rascal
New Orleans music: the gift that keeps on giving! A generous font of God's love, if you will.
I love these guys. 'Fess, Champion Jack Dupree, Archibald, Dr. John, Pine Top Perkins, man, those guys can (could) play. I suppose Professor Longhair is my favorite, but Booker is right up there.
Mostly self-taught ear-players by the way. Some interviewer asked 'Fess one time, so Professor, what key do you like to play in? "Well," said the maestro, "I probably plays in all of 'em."
