His "Locked Down" album he did a couple of years ago is among my all time faves.

True Original.

At Carnegie Hall a few years back for the Michael Dorf "Music Of..." Bill Withers tribute concert where they recreated Withers' "Live At Carnegie" hall album, song for song via guest artists.

D'Angelo was scheduled to appear, but canceled a few days(?) before the show. Dr. John was his replacement. And he killed. Dare, I say, the funkiest version of "Use Me" I have ever heard.

I recall him walking out to the piano with arm braces, wondering if he was okay. Little did I know I was in for a killer performance. Glad to have shared that show with my dad.

Still haven't delved into his full discography yet, but grateful for the music he's left behind.

This user has tons of Letterman footage from all incarnations of Letterman's shows. He made this Dr. John compilation in the wake of his passing.
