Dr. John – Gumbo [Remastered] (2013)

Posted by Zorn on June 10, 2013as

drAn excellent sounding reissue of Dr. John’s 1972 albumful of New Orleans R ‘n’ B. Mostly featuring his interpretations of classics and hit singles (“Iko Iko” “Mess Around” “Junko Partner” “Stack-A-Lee” “Tipitina”, and a medley of Huey ‘Piano’ Smith tracks), with one original (“Somebody Changed the Clock”), and a great slow blues track called “Let the Good Times Roll” (but not the same song as was a hit single for Shirley and Lee… even though Shirley does, coincidentally, sing backing vocals on the LP).
Great piano playing from Dr. John, along with his growly vocals. Excellent support from a bunch of his New Orleans friends who all found themselves in Los Angeles (where this was recorded) in late ’71. Great percussion and horns. The mix of r ‘n’ b, jazz, blues and traditional New Orleans styles is irresistible.
