This past April, Dr. John celebrated the release of his album Locked Down with a show at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and in this clip, the New Orleans R&B maestro gets a hand on "Ice Age" from Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach, who produced Locked Down. Dr. John looks his shamanic best and vibes out on keyboards as Auerbach provides the slinky, funky lead riff. Dr. John jumps into an expended freeform keyboard solo halfway through, but the wide-ranging percussion section is the most impressive thing, clattering and banging away for a soulful jamboree.
