Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Ice Age” by Dr. John

Whether you know him as Mac Rebennack, “The Night Tripper” or Dr. John, he’s been responsible for healthy doses of New Orleans swamp, Gris Gris and funk for over 40 years…and on the strength of his latest record, The Doctor is most definitely IN! Over the last decade or two, Dr. John has been searching musically for some relevance releasing albums full of standards and light Jazz fare that didn’t do him any favors toward advancing his career at its advanced stage. The pairing of the good Doctor with producer Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys has given him some down-home mojo, bringing the quirk back to his sound not heard since the days of “In The Right Place” back in 1973. The album is solid through and through and surely a contender for one of the best so far this year. I’m sure you’ll a-Gris Gris.
