In the summer of 1981, Mac Rebennack, a.k.a. Dr. John, a.k.a. The Night Tripper, walked into a New York City rehearsal studio to record his first solo piano LP. No band, no overdubs, no gris gris, no studio tricks, just Mac at the piano and at his very best. The results of these historic sessions were released on the small but highly respected jazz label Clean Cuts Records as "Dr. John Plays Mac Rebennack." Though no one at the time could have predicted that his first Clean Cuts session would mark the beginning of an exciting new chapter in Mac's long and varied musical career, Dr. John Plays Mac Rebennack was widely heralded by music critics and aficionados everywhere as one of the seminal touchstones of New Orleans piano style. From a full page of coverage in Time, to Record of the Month in Stereo Review, to Keyboard, Playboy, Rolling Stone, People and Billboard (the record spent considerable time on the Billboard Jazz charts) .... Everyone noticed! When a year passed and Mac's recording and solo performances garnered the highest praise, he returned to the same piano in Chelsea for his second solo date. This session, which yielded the album "The Brightest Smile In Town," is now re-released and re-mastered with the inclusion of six previously unreleased tracks as "The Legendary Sessions Volume Two." Clean Cuts Records is proud to present the second and final volume of solo piano recordings from one of the most gifted, singular and important American artists.
