It's a mark of the man's musical influence that the title track to this concise collection of vintage Professor Longhair compositions became the theme song to New Orleans' Mardi Gras celebration. The rest of the cuts here, a rough and ready assembly of raucous R&B and irresistibly danceable rhythms, represent a fraction of the famed New Orleans musician's contribution to American music, a notable inclusion being his recording of "Tipitina." "Willie Mae" is a fine example of New Orleans stride piano playing, while "Longhair's Blues Rhumba" blends boogie-woogie and Latin rhythms with a strutting second-line beat.
