Wardell Quezergue

Wardell Quezergue Sr., was the bandleader, producer, composer, arranger and educator whose contributions to a plethora of New Orleans rhythm & blues classics earned him the moniker “the Creole Beethoven.”

As an arranger and, occasionally, as a producer, Mr. Quezergue (pronounced ka-ZAIR) dressed up recordings with horns and other embellishments. His credits include Jean Knight's smash “Mr. Big Stuff,” the Dixie Cups' “Iko Iko” and “Chapel of Love,” Professor Longhair's recording of “Big Chief,” Robert Parker's “Barefootin,'” King Floyd's “Groove Me,” Dorothy Moore's “Misty Blue” and Dr. John's landmark 1992 album “Goin' Back to New Orleans.”
