Even though Malcolm John Rebennack Jr., or Dr. John, is a pianist and Louis ‘Satchmo’ Armstrong was a trumpeter, ‘The Night Tripper’ is ideally suited to pay tribute to the jazz legend. Dr. John interprets Louis Armstrong is the subtitle of his show; he immediately demonstrates that he has no intention of imitating Armstrong’s music. That’s unnecessary because although the style of Dr. John (1940) leans heavily on his roots in New Orleans, it has undergone a complete transformation.Blues, rock ‘n’ roll, jazz, funk, zydeco – pianist-singer Rebennack has created a new and appetizing mix; so appealing that it has earned him six Grammys. Together with musical director and trombonist Sarah Morrow, among others, he will tell his personal story of Satchmo’s legacy. Original and yet completely in line with the spirit of New Orleans’ greatest son.
