Dr. John's Gumbo

Dr. John's Gumbo by Dr. John
Released: Mar 2005
Label: Rhino/Elektra
A transitional record for Dr. J, this celebration of Big Easy R&B classics (with a Ray Charles chestnut done in the style as well) finds Mac Rebennack concentrating on a more straightforward sound. It would be easy to grouse about the loss of the Voodoo Wildman persona if this album wasn't so much fun. Plus, the spotlight is finally on Dr. John's kick-ass piano playing.
