Dr. John just released an album in tribute to Louis Armstrong entitled "Ske-Dat-De-Dat" and I just had to compare the two! Join me today as we play these timeless tunes side by side - and see just how well the old standards hold up as they get a new treatment from Dr. John with his guest trumpeters, Nicholas Payton, Terence Blanchard, Arturo Sandavol, Wendell Brunious, James "12" Andrews and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band as well as vocalists, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Mike Ladd, Telmary, Bonnie Raitt, Anthony Hamilton, The McCrary Sisters, Ledisi and Shemekla Copeland.
