Creole Moon is the twenty-sixth album by New Orleans R&B artist Dr. John, originally released in 2001 via Parlophone Records.

Dr. John a.k.a the night tripper is a singer, songwriter, voice actor, pianist, and guitarist, whose music combines Blues, Pop, Jazz, Zydeco, Boogie Woogie and Rock & Roll.

Active as a session musician since the late 1950s, he gained a cult following in the late 1960's following the release of his album Gris-Gris and his appearance at the Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive music. He performed a wildly theatrical stage show inspired by medicine shows, Mardi Gras costumes and voodoo ceremonies. This eventually resulted in his signature 'voodoo' music style.

Between his various standards albums of the '90s and the heavily collaborative Anutha Zone from 1998, by the end of the millennium it'd been nearly a decade since Dr. John's last record of straight-ahead New Orleans R&B. Creole Moon rectified that situation nicely - it's "a personal interpretation of New Orleans" (as he says in the liner notes), and these 14 vignettes of New Orleans life are soaked in Crescent City soul.

Creole Moon is also a return to the sound of his classic mid-'70s albums, right from the spidery electric piano and testifying back-up vocals on the opener "You Swore". Most of his band, the Lower 9-11 Musician Vocaleers, had been playing with him for close to 20 years, and provide solid accompaniment. 

Dr. John also invites some friends along, including David "Fathead" Newman, slide guitarist Sonny Landreth, fiddler Michael Doucet, and a tight horn section led by Fred Wesley. And there's few better than Wesley to knock out a tough James Brown groove, as he and the band do on "Food For Thot" while Dr. John vamps over the top.

Creole Moon shows Dr. John doing what he does best and is one to compare with his classics.

Check out the tracks: “Creole Moon”; “Georgianna”; “Imitation Of Love” and “Food For Thot”.
