Legendary New Orleans artist Mac Rebennack Jr., aka. Dr. John, comes to glorious fruition on his new Mercernary on Blue Note. An idea from his daughter Tina, who pointed out that "Personality," a 1946 hit for Johnny Mercer, would be a perfect fit for her dad. She suggested doing a whole album of Mercer songs, a fellow Southerner, Savannah-born, a performer, and a workaholic, who either wrote the words, music or both to at least 1,500 songs, lots of them classics. Dr. John could relate.
