    Prof.Longhair may be entertaining in person but this so-called transcription in no way typifies LH's piano playing. Not representative.

    The music is simple enough to read, and the harmonies are not complex, but I find, as an anglo-saxon, that the rhythms are a little difficult. I have bought the recordings to get through this. Mardi Gras in New Orleans anyone?

    This is great New Orelans piano like Fess plays it on his records - for me very fine transcriptions with a lot of variations. Actually, it is not that difficult to play ... but: to get the rhythm is pretty tough. I'll have to work my way slowly through the collection...

  • October 08, 2007 Excellent Louisana styled piano sheetmusic

    I wasn't familiar with this style of piano playing. Everyone is familiar with Ray Charles, Dr. John, and others that play this style of music. But who many know it was Professor Longhair that created that style.
