Ron Lee | September 6th, 2013

9_6_neworleanspianowizardsWho catches your ear, your spirit, when the jazz piano music comes from the masters in New Orleans, and what age is he from ?  The beat & jiving keys of Dr John; the blusey, Mardi Gras “fingers covering a million keys” at an easy walking gait by Henry “Professor Longhair” Byrd; the jangling, bouncing, dancing hits from James Booker; the samba-like, fast-moving notes with fluid signature switches of Henry Butler; the boogy-woogy of Huey Smith ?
Catch this mid-day coverage with Kathleen & Greg for samples of the greats, with where they came from & where they went to.
