Product Description:

In historical terms, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band are the Beatles of New Orleans brass. They were formed in the late 1970s, and their popularity spread beyond the Crescent City in the '80s, as their mixture of traditional Big Easy brass band sounds with funk and other contemporary styles influenced hordes of Louisiana horn-wielders. Their third studio recording (fourth release overall), THE NEW ORLEANS ALBUM, provides a perfect thumbnail sketch of the group's modus operandi. While the predominant flavor is second-line rhythms and post-parade-band arrangements, these are leavened by a wealth of other influences, including calypso ("Me Like it Like That"), blues ("Don't Touch My Leg"), and jump blues ("That's How You Got Killed Before," featuring an Elvis Costello guest vocal that nicely courts the rock/pop vote). The sheer, unadulterated soul of the hornmen is undeniable throughout THE NEW ORLEANS ALBUM, whether they're sticking to their roots, mixing it up with some funk, or showing off their post-bop jazz chops.
