As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Renegade Brass Band @ Hoochie Coochie

Don't ask me their names - even the band's website doesn't give them - strange!
Nevertheless, that's their problem.
I have to be honest, I'm not into Hip Hop.  I appreciate and often enjoy the impetus of the rhythm and the vocal versatility but, at the end of the day, I like to know what the song is all about!
There's an old standard - I Like To Recognise The Tune - with Hip Hop I like to recognise the words!
Having got that out of the way, the band are  superb and they soon hooked the dancers!
The solos were brief and integrated into the ensembles. A couple of the trumpets, the tenor and trombone had flurries but this isn't a soloing band, The power is in the ensembles and the opener practically lifted the roof off Hoochie Coochie. The sousaphone guy looked as though he had a python entwined around him but it was only the outré lacquering of the instrument.
Down on the dance floor a couple of street hoofers went through a stunning routine that almost emulated the Nicholas Brothers (see previous post).
It was fun - CD review to follow.

Good site! I really love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I'm wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I've subscribed to your feed which must do the trick! Have a great day!
