live stuff: dirty dozen brass band at the scala, 14/3/07

New Orleans brass band music can be surprisingly danceable. There's some blues, some jazz-funk, a few Marvin Gaye covers and a nice hip-hop (brass-hop?) style encore, but most of the selections tonight owe quite a debt to James Brown it seems to me. Good stuff...

As ever, some links:
- the Dirty Dozen web site
- history of the band
- New Orleans music in general.
