Experimental Brass of 2014

On today's edition of That Righteous Jive we'll be listening to some of my favorite experimental brass of 2014. I'll be featuring Renegade Brass Band and the new LP they released yesterday: RBB: Rhymes, Beats & Brass.

"Combining 8 horns with 2 percussionists, scratch DJ and live MC, the Renegade Brass Band mix the best of funk, hip-hop and jazz with a raw brass sound."

We'll also hear from Harlequin Dynamite Marching Band and Jack Brass Band. Stream it live August 5th, 5-6pm CDT right here on KRUU radio.

 2013 has been a great year for brass bands pushing the limits of their genre. Youngblood Brass Band just released Pax Volumi, their first album in six years. Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, an eight-piece brass band from Chicago consisting of the eight sons of jazz trumpeter Phil Cohran, released their most experimental album to date, Fly: The Customs Prelude. Broken Brass Ensemble, an eight-piece brass band from the Netherlands, released a self-titled debut album. And last but not least, Riot Jazz Brass Band, a nine-piece brass band based out of Manchester, released their debut album, Sousamaphone

On this Tuesday’s edition of That Righteous Jive we’ll be listening to some of my favorite tracks from all of the albums above. Though all of these groups are anchored in New Orleans style brass, they sail through realms of hip-hop, funk, and rock—all with a strong emphasis on percussion. If you want to hear how today’s brass bands are re-inventing the genre then be sure to tune in September 17th, 5-6pm CDT right here on KRUU radio.
