      Mac Rebennack growls some mean funk

      I first encountered Dr John a few years ago when he meandered onto the stage during the filming of the classic movie The Last Waltz, if you like the Band you will agree, he sat down at the piano and played a fun time honky tonk song with the band. Catchy, cheesy, old school and fun. Perfect. Then I forgot all about him.

      Now he is "back", emphasizing old hip and ice cool again. This time though the big turn is the addition of newcomer Dan Auerbach of Black Keys fame, and quite frankly this is sounds like a master stroke. A slow burning album I must admit first, these slowed funk grooves take repeated listen to ingrain themselves into your very thinking. After a week it was my go to album for any mood!

      Dr John or Mac Rebennack is in fine fettle, the sounds have not morphed into dated excursions off nostalgia. Each song blends in together perfectly, old but with a great fresh feel that is owed to some fabulous record quality. Dan Auerbach's Black Keys trademark guitar can be found often, rubbing shoulders with much looser drum patterns and big ol' horn honking. It's the sort of album he will probably be writing in 50 years time. But let's not forget Dr. John is the boss here, hissing and praising with that ragged Louisiana accent has made the album of the year!
