    Watch: Dr. John's "Ice Age" Video, Filmed Live in Brooklyn

    Storied musician and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dr. John—aka Mac Rebennack—released his Nonesuch Records debut album, Locked Down, in April 2012 to great critical acclaim and, more recently, numerous year-end-best accolades and a Grammy Award nomination for Best Blues Album. Locked Down was produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and features a band of young musicians Auerbach hand-picked to make the album at his Nashville studio. To celebrate the album's release last spring, Dr. John and the band, including Auerbach, played a series of shows at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). To round out a stellar year and to ring in the new, the video of their performance of the album track "Ice Age," shot live at BAM by Reid Long, premiered on Rolling Stone last week. It is now available to watch below via Dr. John's YouTube channel and at nonesuch.com/media.

    "Full of muscled, vintage R&B grooves, fevered soloing, psychedelic arrangements and oracular mumbo jumbo," Rolling Stone said of Locked Down upon its release in April, "it's the wildest record he's made in many years."
