On Dr. John’s first major-label effort, and first vocal studio album in ten years, he performs a set of pop standards including Cole Porter’s «Love for Sale» and Johnny Mercer’s «Accentuate the Positive.» After starting out with a wild stage act and unusual costumes, Dr. John has evolved into a vocal stylist and piano virtuoso, which makes the idea of doing this sort of material appealing. And he does it well, turning out a leisurely duet with Rickie Lee Jones on «Makin’ Whoopee» that won a Grammy (Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group), and giving sad feeling to «My Buddy.» Maybe he has changed since the Gris Gris days, but even a mellowed Dr. John is a tasty one. ~ William Ruhlmann
