“New Orleans pianist and singer whose blend of snaky rhythms, Crescent City funk, and voodoo flair made him one of the city’s prime musical ambassadors.” AMG All Music Guide
“Dr. John belongs to a prestigious lineage of New Orleans keyboard greats that includes such names as Professor Longhair, Huey “Piano” Smith and Fats Domino. His name has become synonymous with the city in which he was born. Dr. John’s music is stamped with the rhythms and traditions of the Crescent City, and he has spent a career that now spans more than half a century championing its music.
His best-known work includes Gris-Gris, an album steeped in the otherworldly sounds of Louisianan voodoo culture; Gumbo, wherein he offered an authoritative overview of New Orleans’ finest music; and In the Right Place, which gave him the Top Ten hit “Right Place, Wrong Time.” His concerts are ritual invocations of New Orleans’ enduring musical spirit. More broadly, he’s helped bring the sound of New Orleans into the national mainstream.” Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
