Fess first recorded in 1949, and sides like "Big Chief," "Go to the Mardi Gras," and "Tipitina" became Crescent City classics in the 1950s and early '60s, but unfortunately he never saw the kind of commercial success that other New Orleans piano players like Fats Domino were able to achieve, which was truly a shame

It sounds fantastic on paper: Record Professor Longhair live, at a hometown club, with a professional mobile studio. Capture the man in his element with pristine fidelity, playing a classic club set towards the end of his life. The actual results are substantially less exciting.
