Album Review
Reviewed 2007-09-11 
Fun and feel-good New Orleans funk from a founding member of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Serious brass (as you’d expect) plus some solid guitar and playful vocals. You’ll wanna wiggle. Not a dud in the bunch.

1. Upbeat instrumental brass jam w/beaucoup de funk.
2. It’s called “Laid Back” and it lives up. Hip, jazzy, way cool.
3. Mid/upbeat w/hip hop vocals & screaming guitar/hot horns.
4. Midtempo w/a hint of Afro funk great guitar/perc/horns.
5. Serious 70’s-style funk. Upbeat instrumental w/lots of fire.
6. Dr. John on piano/vox. Downtempo sax/sleepily romantic.
7. Upbeat blend of dirty brass, fluid guitar, vocals. An urban jam.
8. Midtempo w/a bit of reggae, vocals, a relaxed groove.
9. Midtempo hip hop vocals, horns, guitars. Slick & smooth.
10. Short reprise of #2 w/hip hop vocals.
