Dr. John Artist Snapshot:

Cutting his teeth on New Orleans session work while still a teen in the 1950s, pianist and singer Dr. John (born Mac Rebennack) emerged in the late 1960s with GRIS-GRIS, a blend of snaky rhythms, Crescent City funk, and swampland voodoo flair. Since then, he has remained one of New Orleans's prime musical ambassadors, an artist with his own trademark sound and style.

Product Notes

By the early ''80s, Dr. John was mostly in demand as a session player and ad jingle writer, but he cut a pair of back-to-back solo piano albums that proved he was still capable of greatness. The first, Dr. John Plays Mac Rebennack, ranges widely, from joyous tributes ("Memories of Professor Longhair," "Pinetop") and slow blues ("New Island Blues," "Saints") to graceful standards such as "Dance à la Negres" and "Wade in the Water." With the exception of a gentle version of "The Nearness of You" and a peppy take on "Silent Night," this album is all instrumental--a joy if you''re a fan of solo piano, though perhaps a bit wearing if you''re not. (The 2002 reissue adds four previously unreleased bonus tracks.) --Keith Moerer

Editorial Reviews


Album Review

In the summer of 1981 Mac Rebennack, a.k.a. Dr. John a.k.a. The Night Tripper walked into a New York City rehearsal studio and, for the first time in his illustrious career, recorded as a solo pianist. No band, no overdubs, no gris gris, no tricks, just Mac at the piano and at his very best. The results of these historic sessions were released on the small respected jazz label Clean Cuts Records. Now remastered with previously unreleased bonus tracks and specially repackaged in a six panel sleeve with a 16 page full color booklet, this historic recording is now available again to Mac's now and old fans. Volume Two will be released in 2003. Standard Jewel Case/Box Lot-30
