Dr. John Guests at Bruce Springsteen Jazz Fest Set

Just minutes ago Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band finished off the first weekend of action at the fairgrounds for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival with a barn-burning, curfew-busting 24-song set. Along the way, the ensemble debuted a few originals from the Seeger Sessions days and welcomed a Crescent City legend to the stage – Dr. John – in front of a massive crowd.

Dr. John came out in the middle of the set for a rendition of Something You Got by Chris Kenner, a song that was thought to be played by the E Street Band five times in 1972, 1973 and 1974 – now THAT’S a bustout. Springsteen has performed with the good doctor in the past, most notably at the 2006 Grammys as part of an all-star version of Wilson Pickett’s In The Midnight Hour. Today’s set also saw the E Street Band debut of four songs The Boss played with his Seeger Sessions group – How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times and Live?, Oh Mary Don’t You Weep, Pay Me My Money Down and the traditional When The Saints Go Marching In.
