In the heart of New Orleans, studio owner Cosimo Matassa smiled. Working with producers like Dave Bartholomew and Allen Toussaint produced the sounds that he had in his head. Like blues – but not the rural, ‘work-up-this-morning’ and acoustic guitar kind. A more funky, piano-based style, with horns and drums that kept everything a-rollin’. That kind of thing. A precursor of rock and roll; it was a sound meant for juke boxes.
