I LOVE Dr. John and will buy this and appreciate what he does for music and up and coming musicians by his support.

Oh man, that will be great. I love Johnny Mercer - one of the greatest writers of the American songbook along with Jerome Kern and Hoagy Carmichael. And Dr. John is perfect for his stuff. I'd love to hear Mac's take on Moon River.
