It made its debut in 1999 with the likes of Wyclef Jean and the Refugee All-Stars, The Roots and, of course, New Orleans' own blues pioneer Dr. John - aka The Night Tripper - who makes a grand return to the event this year only months after landing his sixth Grammy award for his album 'Locked Down'. Long may he remain the epitome of the city's spectacular music scene!

Dr John, Tribal Album Review


If you sound this good approaching your 70th birthday, you'll have an awful lot to be thankful for. After fifty years recording Dr John is still able to deliver. Sounding as good as ever, Dr John, the multi-Grammy winning national institution of New Orleans makes it appear oh so simple.

The consummate ease with which this album flows along would seem to be instinctive. It's almost as if it has become second nature, like making the mornings toast or ...................breathing. Dr John lays down the tunes so casually and coolly that you wonder, can it really be that easy? Is he that good, that cool, so immeasurably immersed in his music and craft that a song can seemingly be born out of nothing and joyously crafted before your ears?

The Jazz infusions, and bluesy licks only help draw the listener into Dr John's world of Gumbo, Creole, Cajun and Voodoo. You are quickly, and effortlessly, aurally transported way down into The Deep South with the dear Dr's Feel Good Music. "Call me Doc, your medicine man, I've got the cure in the palm of my hand." The honky tonk of the piano adding to the deliciously swampy flavour of the opening tune.

The Last Waltz Review


Extraordinary
The Band were one of the best rock groups of the '60s and '70s, creating a unique brand of music that incorporated elements of folk, blues, and soul -- ironically, at the time when those elements were being squeezed out of rock by groups such as Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

Unfortunately, the Band's music didn't have much influence on the way future music would develop. But The Last Waltz, a concert film of the Band's 1976 farewell performance, remains an essential artwork. The film is a reminder that while they lasted, the Band (guitarist Robbie Robertson, drummer Levon Helm, keyboardists Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel, and bassist Rick Danko) was as good as any group in rock history.
