DR JOHN Ske Dat De Dat – The Spirit Of Satch


In stock

In memoriam. Mac Rebennack November 20th 1941 – June 6th 2019. Executive producer Malcolm Mills met Mac in 2012 to hear from the horse’s mouth why he wanted to make this record, and told him ‘Louis Armstrong visited me in a dream and all he said was ‘do my music your way’ – that’s all he said. That was the whole f***in’ dream’. So that was that. Who could refuse? Mac was pleased to have his dream realised and pass the torch, fuelled by his own funknology, because he was born and grew up in the 3rd Ward of New Orleans – exactly where Louis Armstrong lit the flame. This limited-edition vinyl album is released on the first anniversary of Mac’s passing to commemorate the lives of Mac Rebennack and Louis Armstrong without both of whom, the path of our musical discovery would have been very poorly lit.
