    Lots of good ones. Such A Night from Live Trippin' is a favorite. And the Duke Elegant, and Anutha Zone albums are favorites.

    For a great set on YouTube watch the Landmark Jazz gig from 2015.

    Great band here with a badass chick on trombone. If the guitarist looks familiar, it's Jamie Kime formerly of Dweezil Zappa's band.

    I mourned by re-listening to the 1976 vinyl release

    Dr. John 16 Greatest Hits.jpg,

    still a worthy listen after all these years.

    The trombone, combined with Dr. John's "Beefheartian" Howling Wolf vocals, sounds strangely like a Zappa concoction.

    I never thought of Zappa listening to that set. It just sounded like pure Dr John to my ears.

    A great musician and personality. I prefer the early Night Tripper work from 1968-71 to his more conventional No'leans R & B output which followed.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
