iTunes Review

One of New Orleans’ best-known musicians, Dr. John pays tribute to New Orleans’ most legendary musician, Louis Armstrong, on this free and funky collection of songs by and associated with the great man. Arranged by trombonist and coproducer Sarah Morrow, every track features guest stars to keep the productions ever-changing and alive. Dr. John kicks off the often-covered “What a Wonderful World” with a pure New Orleans groove that also features The Blind Boys of Alabama offering up a fabulous vocal intro and trumpeter Nicholas Payton acting as a soloist. Anthony Hamilton provides the smoothest of vocals for a modern, easy-listening jazz version of “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child,” while The McCrary Sisters offer subtle contributions to “That’s My Home” and “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen” that also lets modern soul singer Ledisi take the reins. The backing bands throughout provide a modest consistency that further allows the stars to show off. With guests like Terence Blanchard, Shemekia Copeland, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Arturo Sandoval, the album never lacks for star power or quality material.

Although he didn't become widely known until the 1970s, Dr. John had been active in the music industry since the late '50s, when the teenager was still known as Mac Rebennack. A formidable boogie and blues pianist with a lovable growl of a voice, his most enduring achievements fused with New Orleans R&B, rock, and Mardi Gras craziness to come up with his own brand of "voodoo" music. He's also quite accomplished and enjoyable when sticking to purely traditional forms of blues and R&B. On record, he...
