On his latest album, Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch, Dr. John pays tribute to the one-and-only Louis Armstrong. The album is a collection of 13 songs put through the "Nite Tripper" wash with a little help from his friends, including Bonnie Raitt, Shemekia Copeland, Arturo Sandoval and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. John, here in Studio A to talk about the new album and we’ll hear a sample of the new songs during this episode of FUV Live.

The Doctor Is In the House

It's been two months since Mardi Gras and less than two weeks until Jazzfest, but you can find a taste of The Big Easy in Brooklyn this weekend in the third part of Dr. John's "Insides Out" residency at BAM, "Funky But It's Nu Awlins."
