The famous New Orleans music venue Tipitina's is named after one of Longhair's signature songs, and was created specifically as a venue for Longhair to perform in his aged years Afro-Cuban elements. In the 1940s, Professor Longhair was playing with Caribbean musicians, listening a lot to Perez Prado's mambo records, and absorbing and experimenting with it all. He was especially enamored with Cuban music. The Chronological Professor Longhair 1949 (2001). Tipitina: The Complete 1949–1957 New Orleans Recordings (2008). The Primo Collection (2009).

Henry Roeland Byrd, aka Professor Longhair (also known as Baldhead or Fess ), remains one of the most recognizable piano talents to come out of Louisiana. He is often referred to as the father of New Orleans R&B. His funky, rumba-based piano style and delightfully deep and wild-edged voice livened up nightclubs and festivals spanning four decades. He made some of the most captivating songs the world has ever known – expressive music that is virtually unrivaled for its pure joy.
