Eighteen days before the opening of the 1974 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, a fire destroyed rhythm & blues piano legend Professor Longhair’s home. In one of its first major philanthropic efforts, the nonprofit foundation that owns the festival organized a benefit concert for Longhair at the Warehouse, the fabled brick venue along the Mississippi River. The April 22, 1974 event featured a who’s who of New Orleans musicians in their prime: Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, the Meters, Earl King, Ernie K-Doe, Snooks Eaglin, the Wild Magnolias, Tommy Ridgley, Benny Spellman, Earl Turbinton, Willie Tee & the Gaturs, and Longhair himself.
