Featuring Jon Cleary

Locked Down represents the totality of the New Orleans music legend whose given name is Mac Rebennack but who had, in the late 60s, recast himself in the guise of the mysterious, swamp-bred gris-gris man he dubbed Dr. John, the Night Tripper. This new disc, produced by The Black Keys? guitarist and longtime Dr. John admirer Dan Auerbach, distills half a century of this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee?s picaresque musical history, melding the shamanistic stage persona with the authority of the consummate studio musician, the cosmic conjurer with the street-savvy poet. These 10 new songs, written by Rebennack with Auerbach and his handpicked crew of backing musicians, combines incantatory chants and often politically charged raps with candid and soulful reflections, plus a healthy dose of hypnotic, simmering funk. As with much of what this multiple Grammy?award winning singer and composer has recorded over the last five decades, the Big Easy is the musical and spiritual jumping-off point, but these new tracks incorporate a world?s worth of influences, from gospel and blues to psychedelic rock and Afro-beat.
