The primarily New Age label Windham Hill brought together Dr. John, David (Fathead) Newman and Art Blakey in 1990 for a blues-based session that was dubbed Bluesiana Triangle. Bluesiana II appeared the following year (Blakey died before that session took place) and that was the extent of the collaboration.
On the debut disc, there's plenty of Dr. John's boogie-woogie piano and raspy vocals, some soulful sax and flute from Newman and the whole thing being driven by Blakey's drums. The opening track is a fine instrumental jam on Newman's Heads Up. Get it below. The MP3 is from a cassette version of the album.
Neither Bluesiana CD remains in print, although used copies are plentiful (and reasonably priced) in the Amazon Marketplace. The albums aren't available as legal downloads.
Via YouTube, here's another sampling of Bluesiana Triangle.
