The Dirty Dozen Brass Band

In their prime, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band successfully mixed together R&B with the instrumentation of a New Orleans brass band. Featuring Kirk Joseph on sousaphone playing with the agility of an electric bassist, the group revitalized the brass band tradition, opening up the repertoire and inspiring some younger groups to imitate its boldness. Generally featuring five horns (two trumpets, one trombone, and two saxes) along with the sousaphone, a snare drummer, and a bass drummer, the DDBB were innovative in their own way, making fine recordings for Rounder, Columbia, and the George Wein Collection (the latter released through Concord). Guest artists have included Dr. John, Dizzy Gillespie, and Danny Barker. The DDBB re-emerged in 1999 with John Medeski as their producer, and many called the group's Buck Jump release a return to classic form. The group then returned in 2002 with yet another surprising album, Medicated Magic. Two years later, the band made its Artemis label debut with Funeral for a Friend. In 2006, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the DDBB issued their most ambitious album to date, What's Going On, a wide-ranging musical tour de force that was a track-for-track remake of Marvin Gaye's classic 1971 album. In addition to the DDBB, it also featured the talents of many musicians from the Crescent City. The album was not so much a response to Hurricane Katrina itself, but to the subsequent treatment of New Orleanians by the city government and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In 2011, the group issued My Feet Can't Fail Me Now, a further extrapolation on Crescent City traditions wedded to hip-hop, modern R&B, funk, and rock. In the spring of 2012, DDBB issued the more traditional Twenty Dozen, their debut offering for Savoy Jazz. ~ Scott Yanow

I spent six weeks covering Katrina from landfall til after Rita. The song "right on" reminds of that time without the rough edges. I came to know and love New Orleans in those dark times. There is a soul there that few appreciate. Even at its worst The Big Easy was kind to those who rolled in with the big muddy. Tragic it wasn't as kind to the natives. A sick and wonderful tradition to treat guests better than those who toil to keep above water.

These guys are incredible and they're so nice! I was playing with the Massachusett s All-state Jazz Band at Newport in 2013, and after we performed, I stayed for DDBB. I had my trombone with me, and Roger Lewis called me onstage to jam with them!! I played with them for about 10-15 minutes, and afterwards, they said that they play at a few venues a town over from me all the time, and invited me to jam again when they're around. They're truly the most incredible brass band ever!

I saw DDBB at the 2013 Wanee festival, in Live Oak Florida. They are just the sound that I've been looking for. They are definitely worth checking out, if they ever come to a town near you.

Gotta love the Dirty Dozen! Another seemingly neighborhood based NOLA brass band is the Lil' Rascals whose CD i found in an Austin, Texas thrift store about 6 months after Katrina. Worth checking out as well!

Amazing! They actually made my ears bleed one night @ Howlin' Wolf in NOLA in 2007! Great show, though!

Yet another great song that doesn't fit my station. Get with it Pandora, Just because I like this song doesn't mean that it fits "The Spike Jone and His City Slickers Channel."

Saw the DDBB Bloomington, IN at Second Story, closing out the inaugural Lotus World Music Festival circa 1994. I can honestly say that I have been required to shake my a** like that before or since. Deep magic that night.

I was in NOLA for 5 weeks this summer. Stopped by a bar in Uptown on Oak Street and danced till the wee hours listening to a brass band. Can't remember their name, but they were hot, tight and a hoot of a good time.
