New Orleans jazz great Dr. John returns with a hard-hitting bluesy, social commentary in the form of “Revolution.” He’s paired with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach to create what will surely be a nicely crafted album, Locked Down. Dr. John has long been a staple on the blues and jazz scene so I’m interested in what else Auerbach will be able to bring out of this collaboration. Auerbach did tell Rolling Stone, “Like that Farfisa solo on ‘Revolution’ – that’s a first-take solo. He just goes for it, man. He told me he hadn’t played a Farfisa organ since 1969 when he was with Doug Sahm, and he killed it.” Yeah, that organ is just sick as hell, man.
You can stream “Revolution” here. You won’t regret it. Album drops April 3rd.
