Overview

Over the past twenty years, a number of innovative new groups have been pushing the limits of traditional New Orleans brass-band music by incorporating elements of funk, bebop, and even rap. The result is some of the most raucous, spirited and funky music being made today. This compilation album from Shanachie includes contributions from New Orleans stalwarts like the Dirty Dozen, Rebirth and Olympia Brass Band. Also featured are such diverse non-New Orleans groups as Lester Bowie's Brass Fantasy (led by the Art Ensemble of Chicago trumpeter) and the Les Miserables Brass Band (led by Frank London of the Klezmatics), who offer a not-to-be-missed cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression."
