Professor Longhair
The Bach Of Rock

Professor Longhair - The Bach Of Rock

Almost every musical history contains at least one crucial forbear whose inventions were too bold to translate to a broad audience, but who was nonetheless a profound influence on subsequent generations, and therefore changed the culture at an odd remove - a "musician's musician." In the 1940s and 1950s, that was Fess' stature. On The Bach Of Rock, Longhair bounces buoyantly through old favorites while adding some new songs into the mix. Fess' infectious vocals, jaunty ivory-tickling, and funky groove provide the ultimate soundtrack to the Crescent City and show exactly why the city has the reputation that it does. This superb collection features the Professor's signature style.
