One of my favorite American cities is New Orleans. A big part of that is the music. Rag, jazz, blues, even rock and roll are all part of one of the greatest musical traditions on this continent.

And one of the biggest names in that world left us the other day. Malcolm John Rebannack, better known as New Orleans blues legend Dr. John, passed away from a heart attack at 77.

From the legendary concert film The Last Waltz, here's Dr. John with The Band.


From the Montreux festival in 1995,

Two musical greats from NOLA pay tribute to their hometown.


This duet was actually one of my first exposures to Dr. John

it's weird that just the other day I was listening to several versions of Iko Iko and found his. He was such a fantastic piano player...Now he's gone.
Au revoir Doc

Such affiliated gravid context ... holds the dirt (earth, mire) together and the people battle to expand on it ...
