The Dirty Dozen Brass Band: Buck Jump

By

Sign in to view read count
The Dirty Dozen Brass Band may have been raised in New Orleans, but with Buck Jump they've definitely moved on to Funkytown. While producer John Medeski (of Medeski, Martin & Wood fame) retains some of their original brass band sound, he has also added heavy slabs of his own Hammond B-3, plus assorted percussion and bass. Buck Jump is a raucous, funky, fun-filled mix of traditional New Orleans blues, R&B and modern jazz. This CD has the loose, up-front feel of a live recording and perfectly captures the rollicking interplay between soloists Roger Lewis (baritone), Julius McKee (tuba), Kevin Harris (saxophone) and Gregory Davis (trumpet). Although there is a certain "sameness" to some of the compositions, Buck Jump provides enough high-energy party music to be recommended. Purists should look elsewhere! ***
