New Orleans soul-funk pianist, songwriter, producer and singer Willie Tee (born Wilson Turbinton) has died, aged 63, in a Louisiana hospital of colon cancer. He was best known for his hit “Teasin’ You”, one of three singles that Atlantic licensed from the Nola label in the mid sixties. His spell in the national spotlight was brief, but he remained a major player in New Orleans music, and produced and co-wrote the first two albums by the Wild Magnolias in the mid seventies. He moved to Baton Rouge in 2005 after losing his home following Hurricane Katrina. His brother, saxophonist Earl Turbinton, died last month.
