Vocals, Keyboards – Dr. John



On Dr. John’s first major-label effort, he performs a set of pop standards including Cole Porter’s “Love for Sale” and Johnny Mercer’s “Accentuate the Positive.” After starting out with a wild stage act and unusual costumes, Dr. John has evolved into a vocal stylist and piano virtuoso, which makes the idea of doing this sort of material appealing. And he does it well, turning out a leisurely duet with Rickie Lee Jones on “Makin’ Whoopee” that won a Grammy (Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group), and giving sad feeling to “My Buddy.” Maybe he has changed since the Gris Gris days, but even a mellowed Dr. John is a tasty one.
