Ellis' twisted take on 21st-century New Orleans just can't (and shouldn't) be stopped. Double Wide is now officially a sextet, but that's not subtraction by addition, since most of the players on this disc appeared on Dance like There's No Tomorrow (Hyena, 2009). Sousaphone has never sounded funkier, and neither has drum-Godzilla Jason Marsalis, who is the turbocharged engine Puppet Mischief needs to go this fast, fly this high, and be this much fun. Les bon ton roulez... into the future!
