Legacy, 2013

NEW ORLEANS JAZZ – For most of its 50+ years, the PHJB has been a staid trad-jazz band full of old men playing the usual old repertoire in the usual old way, straight down the line. But nowadays the PHJB is a multi-generational octet aggressively trying to extend its boundaries. This album contains all-original music. It’s still totally within the tradition, but also bold and funky, fitting the contemporary N.O. scene. And it's FUN.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10

1. 3:23 – instrumental: ferocious beat, growling horn riffs, jabbing trumpet solo
2. 4:11 – rollicking gospel-jazz: straightforward lyrics, stomping beat
3. 2:44 – happy little swinger, snappy beat, craggy vocal, muted trumpet break
4. 4:29 – instrumental: funky brass band slide: hot trumpet & cool sax
5. 3:19 – great Halloween tune: growling vocal, screamin’ trumpet, sly groove
6. 3:21 – upbeat blues-shuffle, cute vocal, roadhouse piano, sax sneaks in
7. 4:25 – oooh… haunting blue sax moan, torchy vocal, muted trumpet wail
8. 4:19 – rollin’, stompin’ & shoutin’… Screamin’ Jay Hawkins meets brass
9. 2:39 – instrumental: very cool & mysterious; banjo intro, moody horns
10. 3:04 – old-school laid back lope, unpretentious creaky vocal… nice
11. 1:47 – instrumental: heavy, old-world piano solo, lots of reverb
