Fess' Gumbo is kind of an odd duck, a 1980 session originally recorded for Canadian radio and claimed here as Professor Longhair 's last-ever recording session. It mixes interview segments with just his piano tracks alone, although some (maybe even all) were recorded with his band playing along but with the tape only rolling on the keyboard. Fess' Gumbo accomplishes its objective well enough, but there's no bombshell revelation or anything to warrant choosing this disc over most of his regular recordings with his band. If you're looking to get real deep into Professor Longhair 's technique and want revelation, find Stevenson J. Palfi 's video Piano Players Rarely Play Together.
Henry Roeland "Roy" Byrd (December 19, 1918 – January 30, 1980), better known as Professor Longhair or "Fess" for short, was a New Orleans blues singer and pianist. He was active in two distinct periods, first in the heyday of early rhythm and blues and later in the resurgence of interest in traditional jazz after the founding of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 1970. His piano style has been described as "instantly recognizable, combining rumba, mambo, and calypso.
