The brand-new release in the Montreux Years series is a collection of Dr. John's finest performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival between 1986 to 2012. Beautifully restored and mastered, Dr. John: The Montreux Years will be available in multi-format configurations including superior audiophile heavyweight vinyl, high-quality CD and HD digital.
Closely identified with the rich musical roots of his native New Orleans, Dr. John's remarkable musical legacy spans funk, blues, jazz, boogie-woogie, rock, and pop. The self-proclaimed Night Tripper developed a cult following with the release of his first major-label album, Gris-Gris in 1968, and his brew of voodoo incantations left an insurmountable influence among musicians. Fusing New Orleans music with elements of rock and psychedelia, Dr. John's showmanship and elaborate headdresses captured the imaginations of fans across the world.
Dr John: The Montreux Years is a musical trip for fans, who can immerse themselves in the unique styles and recordings of one of music's greatest icons. With references to New Orleans boogie piano, the record begins with `Professor Longhair Boogie' and `You Ain't Such a Much'. Delving further into Dr. John's iconic repertoire, Dr. John: The Montreux Years includes the 1973 top 10 `Right Place, Wrong Time' and `Makin' Whoopee'.
