Reviewed 2004-09-28 
Tribute to New Orleans jazz. Dr. John sounds great as usual but sometimes gets obscured behind all the trappings: strings (1), choir (2, 3), special guests like Mavis Staples (2,3), Randy Newman (10), Willie Nelson (11).

If you don't know Dr. John: Expect lots of slow-tempo, spirited bluesy jazz, a very "roots" sound, some great blues piano splashes, and a gruff Tom Waits-like voice.

1- Slow and cinematic, with strings
2- "Saints" done in funeral dirge mode.
3- Upbeat gospel w/Dirty Dozen Brass Band
4- Story about a voodoo queen, with slow mellow backdrop
5- Piano/trumpet duet, slowish and warm. Tribute to Louis Armstrong.
6- Midtempo soul, a slow strut.
7- Midtempo, party feel with lots of shouting
8- '70s street funk feel. Cool monologue
9- Cute tango, midtempo with an almost Calypso air
10- Randy Newman, happy uptempo
11- Midtempo blues; nice guitar solo
12- Midtempo. Gritty feel.
13- Midtempo. Scratch viola solo from Gatemouth Brown.
14- Slowish barroom shuffle
15- Playful track on organ. Classic tune.
16- Stompy swampy blues
17- BB King and Willie Nelson and Dirty Dozen Brass Band
18- Slow and cinematic, with strings and vocals
