Nol Asynchroni City: Piano Players Rarely Ever Play Together says
"Piano Players Rarely Ever Play Together" is a 76 minute portrait of three great New Orleans pianists and how they influenced one another's music. The three keyboard artists - Tuts Washington, Professor Longhair and Allen Toussaint - are featured playing together for the first time in a rehearsal for a joint concert. The rehearsal turned out to be the only time the three ever played together, because Professor Longhair died two days before the scheduled performance. The documentary takes viewers through the very personal and sacred New Orleans tradition of a jazz wake and funeral procession for Professor Longhair, which was taped at the encouragement of his widow, Alice.
