In the 1950s, New Orleans was one of the major recording centres in the US. With its unrivalled band of session musicians and producers, rock 'n' roll and R&B hits poured out from Cosimo Matassa's studios. Only Elvis Presley sold more records than Fats Domino in the decade and Little Richard, Lloyd Price and Huey Smith weren't far behind. One of the key men in the next decade was Wardell Quezergue, an arranger and producer whose musical abilities earned him the nickname The Creole Beethoven".
