"You Can Trust The Funky Butt Brass Band" is the second release from this St. Louis-based group of musicians who respect and revere the New Orleans brass band tradition. It continues the band's mission to blend traditional jazz styles with a wide range of unexpected musical genres. In the case of the latest CD, that means marrying the traditional dirge of "St. James Infirmary" with an uptempo Latin groove, and infusing the FBBB's interpretations of such pop standards as the Bee Gee's "Stayin' Alive" and Charlie Daniels' "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" with a New Orleans-flavored twist. The record also includes original tunes that might be right at home on a Dirty Dozen or Rebirth album, including the street beat of "Do That Thang" and the swingin' "Fill My Belly," an ode to the culinary delights of the Crescent City. The bottom line for the band, however, is to create a listening experience that's original and occasionally surprising, but always a booty-shaking good time.

Funky Butt Brass Band Saint Louis

The Funky Butt Brass Band was created in 2008 by six musicians who respect and revere the New Orleans brass band tradition. The FBBB brings traditional New Orleans brass tunes and gives them a funky new flavor, in the style of the Dirty Dozen or Rebirth Brass Band. But don't be surprised if you also hear a little Motown, Southern rock, blues and some straight-ahead '70s funk in the mix. ... more
