Vocal Short List 13: Dr. John (new)                              
A new Vocal Short List series continues with the New Orleans influenced singer, Dr. John. His mix of blues and jazz, boogie and rock put him on the musical map in the late 1960s. His voodoo influenced performances made him a cult favorite. Now in his 70s he’s more mainstream now, but still has an individualistic vocal style and a strong hand on the piano. He’s a winner of six Grammy’s and a couple of dozen recordings so Dr. John is almost a household name.
