About this video:

Professor Longhair (born Henry Roeland Byrd, also known as Roy "Bald Head" Byrd and as Fess) December 19 1918 - January 30, 1980 was a New Orleans blues singer and pianist. 

He was noted for his unique piano style, which he described as "a combination of rumba, mambo, and Calypso", and his unusual, expressive voice, described once as "freak unique."

Here he is performing Tipitina with The Meters.
