Yes he does.

Yes, the Dr John version does feature whistling. Can't put my hands on a Prof Longhair version at the moment, but he certainly whistles on 'Mardi Gras In New Orleans'.
A couple more:
Taj Mahal - "Ain't Gwine Whistle Dixie Anymo'"
NRBQ - "Whistle While You Work" (from "Stay Awake...", Hal Wilner's Disney project)
