5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fess, 19 Jun 2002

This review is from: Crawfish Fiesta (Audio CD)
This is a great recording of Fess, backed by a solid seven piece band with Dr John on guitar.
Unlike a lot of Fess albums the recording quality is first class, and both he and the band are on top form. Of the many
Fess albums in my collection this is the one I reach for first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fess Rules, 29 April 2006

(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Crawfish Fiesta (Audio CD)
This is the last record officially recorded by the great Professor Longhair. If you don't know Fess was the Godfather of post 1940's New Orleans Piano. From somewhere he virtually invented a new style that Dr John, Allen Toussaint, James Booker (and our own Jools Holland) all borrowed from to differing degrees. Willie Fugal's Blues perhaps represent this best on this album. This is solo Piano except for added Conga.

His vocal style is also quite unique as well. Deceptively simple which occasionally becomes a sort of yodel.

This is a joyous record with 3 Sax players, a conga player and Dr John on Guitar. The recording quality is very good, as this was recorded in 1979 or 1980.

Rock n Roll, Blues and Jazz fans will all like this album. If you've just spent a difficult half hour trying to enjoy a late Coltrane album, this is such a relief.

Treat yourself to this recording.
