The third and final collaboration between Dr. John and jazz producer Tommy LiPuma, Afterglow is a sequel to 1989’s In A Sentimental Mood. That album was a collection of pop standards, rendered in low-flame fashion. Afterglow revisits the Great American Songbook, but this time ups the ante with a big-band orchestra. Dr. John is the perfect complement to the big-band setting. His loose, lovelorn croak provides a splash of vinegar in the big, brassy renditions of “I Know What I’ve Got,” “Gee Baby, Ain’t I Good to You” and “New York City Blues.” He has a unique ability to get inside these songs. Rather than use Frank Sinatra as a model, Dr. John takes a bluesman’s approach. His timeless style and depth of feeling are highlighted on the lush nightclub maneuvers of “Gee Baby, Ain’t I Good to You,” “Tell Me You’ll Wait for Me” and “There Must Be a Better World Somewhere,” which put him in the tradition of his heroes: Ray Charles, Betty Carter and Charles Brown. Everything about this project is high-class, but if you’re in need of a starting point try the sterling “Blue Skies.”
Louisiana Music at it's best! Once You Hear Great Music, You'll Never Forget It!
Without a doubt one of the best known New Orleanians. No doubt one of the best recordings from the Dr. but then again he's never recorded a bad song in his life. When you feel the need to go to New Orleans without really going. Listen to Dr. John or Johnny Adams or Wolfman Washington or well you get the idea. And when you feel the need to say Where Ya At! Say it and remember to go see ya mom and em' every Sunday.
