Notes

Huey “Piano” Smith was an important part of the great New Orleans piano tradition, following in the footsteps of Professor Longhair and Fats Domino to take his place among the Crescent City’s R&B elite. He was also one of R&B’s great comedians, his best singles matching the Coasters for genial, good-time humor, although his taste often ran more towards nonsense lyrics. Smith’s sound was too earthy to match the pop crossover appeal of Domino or the Coasters, which limited his exposure, and he couldn’t match the latter’s amazing consistency, lacking their reliable supply of material. But at the peak of his game, Smith epitomized New Orleans R&B at its most infectious and rollicking, as showcased on his classic signature tune “Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu.”
