Synopsis

Album Description
"A formidable boogie and blues pianist with a lovable growl of a voice, [Dr. John's] most enduring achievements have used 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." -- All Music Guide Grammy-winning artist Dr. John accompanied by Chris Barber, the kingpin of modern British jazz! Recorded live during a Mardi Gras party in 1983 at London's posh Marquee Club. Dr. John is a charismatic and colorful pianist, singer, and songwriter whose music often combines blues, boogie woogie, and rock 'n' roll. Born in New Orleans, his musical career began as a session musician in New Orleans in the 1950's. During his career he has worked with a veritable "who's who" of the music industry, including Professor Longhair, Frankie Ford, Joe Tex, Eric Clapton, and Mick Jagger.

Still my favorite

"I've been a fan of the good Doctor's for years, and I *still* think this is the best recording he ever made. Great piano, backed up by a good traditional jazz band, plus a decent electric guitar."
