The transcriptions are of high quality, to point that they would be suitable for referencing in an academic publication. As I am particularly fond of Professor Longhair's songs, I have listened to the two versions of 'Tipitina' that are included in the book, and also to 'Willie Fugal's Blues'. Differences between transcription and performance are minor.
It must be said that many of these pieces are not easy, though given that they are note-for-note records of the performances of some of the best blues pianists, that much should be expected. This book is a fine text for students, scholars, and those who are otherwise interested in learning something of the New Orleans piano repertory.
