Imagine being able to see as well as hear the amazing piano styles of the great Dr John up close! These two one-hour videos are jammed full of powerful playing, slowed-down instruction and the wonderful personality of one of the premier artists of our time. Mac (Dr John) Rebennack discusses the playing styles of the musicians he heard and worked with as a youngster growing up in New Orleans, and now he passes this invaluable tradition on to you.
"In addition to successfully imparting a bundle of very useful information, Dr John offers a batch of free-standing performances of tunes out of the venerable New Orleans R & B style, some featuring his wonderfully rich whiskey-soaked vocals. The tapes are exceptionally valuable resources for classes dealing with jazz styles and history, as well as for individual pianists wishing to extend their stylistic palettes." -- Jazz Educators Journal
"While these videos are no pushover course, Dr John offers a rollicking two hours of fun licks, patterns and patter even stone beginners can happily learn from." -- People Magazine
"A graduate course in soul." -- Time
