[spoiler=Об альбоме:]New Orleans legend Dr. John's Nonesuch debut, produced by Black Keys guitarist and uber-fan Dan Auerbach, distills half a century of this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee's picaresque musical history, melding his shamanistic stage persona with the authority of a consummate studio musician, the cosmic conjurer with the street-savvy poet. The ten new songs on Locked Down, written by Dr. John with Auerbach and a handpicked crew of backing musicians, combine incantatory chants ("Ellegua") and often politically charged raps ("Revolution") with candid and soulful reflections ("My Children, My Angels"), swaggering R&B ("Big Shot"), and a healthy dose of hypnotic, simmering funk ("The King Of Izness"). 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.[/spoiler]

[spoiler=Об исполнителе:]Born in 1940, Dr. John is like no other musician. He came to prominence in the late 1960s when his combination of jazz, blues, soul and psychedelic voodoo hit a chord with a crazed America. On albums like Gris-Gris and Gumbo, his ‘Dr. John the Night Tripper’ persona was backed up with winning tracks, and at least two of his songs, Right Place Wrong Time and I Walk on Gilded Splinters, are acknowledged classics (the later having fallen victim to both Humble Pie and Paul Weller). After struggles with heroin, the former Mac Rebennack has enjoyed several career revivals and has also appeared on a lot of other people’s records – he is possibly the only musician ever to have played on records by both Hugh Laurie and Spiritualized.
Now, at a time when most acts are looking wistfully at either nostalgia tours or bed, Dr. John finds himself the subject of a cool reboot, that stalwart tactic of the heritage music industry. This time, his collaborator is not one of the usual tribute crew – Elvis Costello, Dave Stewart or one of several familiar middle-aged hipsters – but the relatively young and happening Dan Auerbach from the modernist blues band The Black Keys. Best of all, Auerbach is interested neither in providing pastiches of Dr. John’s old sound nor weighing it down with misguided over-contemporary tricks; Locked Down is an unusual album, clearly based in the 21st century with its jagged guitars, staccato beats and stark production, but it’s also true to the spirit of the artist on its cover, being mean, lean and funky.
At times the Doctor sounds like Captain Beefheart or Tom Waits, two acts he’s clearly influenced, while at others he’s a spectacularly scathing vocalist on songs like Revolution and Ice Age. The anger that fuelled his Hurricane Katrina EP, Sippiana Hericane, is still present, as is the sense of menace behind his best recordings. Always there’s the experience of almost 50 years as a recording artist in this music. The voice is still there, as is the attitude, and Auerbach has done an excellent job bringing an artist who will never be out of date into the 21st century.[/spoiler]
