  • CREOLE MOON was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
  • Following a string of albums that found Dr. John variously saluting Duke Ellington, tackling standards, and surrounding himself with British rock stars, the Crescent City king got back to home truths with CREOLE MOON. Throughout the album, Dr. John and his Big Easy compatriots serve up the kind of greasy, groove-heavy New Orleans-style R&B that first made the artist formerly known as Mac Rebbenack a success in the 1970s. Everyone from slide guitar hero Sonny Landreth to James Brown cohort Fred Wesley pops up to add bluesy grit and/or funky drive, but the steamy, percolating feel perpetuated throughout CREOLE MOON ultimately evokes the undiluted essence of Dr. John.
Professional Reviews
Q (10/01, pp.118-9) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...The doctor's remedy still hits the spot..."

Uncut (11/01, p.106) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...The good Doctor returns to what he does best with an album of raw, unadulterated 'Nawlins fonk'....CREOLE MOON is quite simply his funkiest, most satisfying effort in perhaps two decades..."

JazzTimes (5/02, p.127) - "...The most colorful crash course in [New Orleans culture] you'd ever hope to find..."

Living Blues (3-4/02, p.72) - "...An impressive effort. Dr.John shares his immense musical knowledge with us in the most effective manner - he performs it."
