On this Tuesday's edition of That Righteous Jive we'll be listening to some great afro-funk, brass and swing--all from albums released this year.

I'll be starting off with the self-titled debut album from Cherimoya: a five-piece "apocalyptic funk" outfit from Portland, Oregon. "Combining elements of classic soul with dark funk, rock and afro-beat, Cherimoya's music is the perfect soundtrack to a post-apocalyptic dance party."

After that we'll be checking out debut albums from both Brass Knuckle Brass Band (a New Orleans-style street funk group from Australia) and Pitchblak Brass Band (a ten-piece band from Brooklyn that blends together hip-hop, jazz, funk and rock).

Last, but not least, we'll be listening to some swing featuring the debut album from Smerins Anti-Social ClubPrimordial Cordial. We'll also hear from Jazzlight and Smoking Time Jazz Club. Stream it live November 12th, 5-6pm CST right here on KRUU radio.
