A Tribute To Dr. John On His 76th Birthday

Take a tour around New Orleans with the music legend himself.
Today on World Cafe, we pay tribute to Dr. John, the American music legend who turns 76 years old Nov. 21. Malcolm John "Mac" Rebennack was born and raised in New Orleans, where he still lives. A chance meeting as a teenager with pianist Professor Longhair set Dr. John down a musical path that combined R&B, New Orleans funk, psychedelia, blues and jazz. The gritty, growly Rock and Roll Hall of Famer boasts a lengthy career. In 2012 he collaborated with The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach on the soulful and funky Locked Down, and he paid tribute to Louis Armstrong in 2014's Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch.
