Louis Armstrong was the king of jazz and pop long before Michael Jackson. Now it is high time for someone to pay him tribute, and no one can do it better than Dr. John. He’s the best thing that could have happened to the king up in music heaven. A true master of voodoo, he has everything it takes to do justice to the legendary Armstrong. He has that raspy voice, the show talent, the right groove and the street credibility of a bluesman from New Orleans. Monty Alexander hails from the other side of the Gulf, from Jamaica, but he too delves into the musical developments of his youth: calypso, then reggae. Two brilliant masters bring us the music of the Creole region.
