(CD/LP/Digital) Nonesuch Records, 2012-04-21

This new Dr John album was already featured in our Record Store Day selection (for its vinyl release) and in our Election Mix. It's a really impressive piece of afropop and dirty soul produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and featuring Max Whitefield on drums (from The Poets Of Rhythm / The Whitefield Brothers / etc.), Leon Michels on keys and woodwinds (from El Michels Affair / Menahan Street Band / etc.), Nick Movshon on bass (from Antibalas / El Michels Affair/ Menahan Street Band / etc.). With of course Mac Rebennack aka Dr John on keys, but no piano here, it's all Hammond B3, Rhodes, Farfisa and the such! Every song in there is a groovy, growling, psychedelic piece of 21st century gumbo. Just brilliant.
