Today's feature showcases another New Orleans piano great, Champion Jack Dupree, in 1990, during his first public appearance in the United States in decades. He was welcomed by Allen Toussaint and the two joined together for an interview and a romping good time on the same piano. Learn more about Champion Jack Dupree on New Orleans Calling.
