5.0 out of 5 stars more than a professor a master of new orleans music, 7 April 2013
This review is from: Rock'N Roll Gumbo (Audio CD)
Firstly I'm proud to say this album was produced by famous french producer Philippe Rault for Bastille productions. French people have some historical connections with New Orleans !!!
But more than that it is definitely in my opinion the best of all Professor Longhair recordings.
its energy is incredible and so is the sound of its piano backed by Clarence Gatemouth Brown Alfred Roberts Julian Farmer and Edwin kimbraugh.
it remains one of my favourite records of all times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's boogie!, 9 May 2006

This review is from: Rock'N Roll Gumbo (Audio CD)
I bought this on impulse this afternoon, and boy am I glad! I vaguely remembered the name from Martin Scorsese's box set, but the track on that really doesn't do this album any justice. The style is very much up-beat: no slow blues here, only the best turn-up-and-dance New Orleans boogie!

I'm sorry that I can't give a more knowledgeable review, but if you like piano blues, you won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Foot tapping, 8 April 2014

Joyous New Orleans R & B from the early seventies. Piano is his instrument and he can't half play. Guaranteed to get your foot tapping at the very least.

When you listen to this, you can hear the link between trad jazz and rock 'n' roll. His voice is great and I find the album a real pick me up. Thank you Hugh Lawrie and Desert Island discs for bringing this to my attention (one of Hugh's chosen tracks).

This review is from: Rock'N Roll Gumbo (Audio CD)
Really like Dr John so gave this a blast. Good album come from the west country so do hear a lot of Bluegrass & gospel. Always been a fan of southern rock just trims it down a bit.
