After the studio bloat of 1971's The Sun, Moon & Herbs, Gumbo is a tightly focused return to Mac Rebennack--aka Dr John--'s musical roots. His band is full of Louisiana legends (Harold Battiste, Lee Allen) plus lesser known but equally important 'Nawlins heroes: Ronnie Barron, Alvin Robinson, and a wonderful trombonist known simply as Streamline. Together, they rage through a dozen New Orleans classics, not only the work of Professor Longhair and Huey Smith, but also Earl King and Ray Charles, who lived in the Crescent City while leading the house band at the Dew Drop Inn. Many of these songs are closely associated with the 1950s, but Gumbo never sounds forced or nostalgic; it's great work from start to finish. --Keith Moerer

I was lucky enough to see Doctor John at the time this album was released. Apart from the Doctor himself, superb on piano and occasional guitar, there was the one of the best drummers I've ever seen. This was a supergroup in the real sense of the word.
This album is quality from top to bottom, musicianship of the highest order and a superb selection of New Orleans tunes. If my house caught fire I'd be running back in for this one!

GUMBO is one of my all-time favourite albums and my favourite in the cannon of my favourite jazz piano player, Dr John.

Back in the 1970s, a pal of mine was a huge Dr John fan and tried very hard to get me enthused about the Voodoo mumblings that made up albums like Gris-Gris and Remedies ... to no avail. Until I heard GUMBO. Though I didn't know it at the time, I was to become a massive fan (via The Blues Brothers) of artists like Junior Wells and the later Atlantic and Stax musicians. What Dr John showed me here was where those musicians took their inspiration from.

I don't think many will argue that Dr John isn't one of the best living jazz pianists we have, and his perky barrel-house style is very much in evidence here. And because of this album, I've sought out opportunities to see the great man live and seen his playful duets with Jools Holland on telly, all richly rewarding experiences.

In retrospect, of course, I came to appreciate Dr John's other work, and have marvelled at the range of famous musicians who've queued up to work with him (Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Mick Jagger, the list goes on), making him the quintessential musician's musician.

Contrary to other reviews about Dr John's work, I'm more inclined to say that if you want an introduction to one of the greatest musicians of the last fifty years, then start here, with a taste of GUMBO.

This was a revelation and refreshing revisitation in those heady hippie days at the time it was released some thirty years ago, and is all the greater for its continued freshness to this day.
Quite simply, it was a firm favourite when issued (not long after seeing Mac live at the 1970 Bath Festival). It is still a top ranking all-time classic and is possibly the essential one to have - but of course there are so many great offerings that it is hard to choose.
So as one of the central characters in the history of rock/fonk/r&b, with authentic respect for his peers, and a true originator to boot - this album sums it up!
I will continue to turn out to hear the man in action whenever possible.
Just try it. Its good for the soul.

Here's the good doctor having a barrel load of fun performing a bunch of New Orleans standards and golden oldies. What's not to like? Put this on and try not to sing along!
