Hot 8 Brass Band – Vicennial: 20 Years Of The Hot 8 Brass Band
Friday, November 13th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Hot 8 Brass Band – Vicennial: 20 Years Of The Hot 8 Brass Band

Image: 1599239 New Orleans’ Hot 8 Brass Band toast their 20th Anniversary in typical roof-raising style, with a series of releases and live dates to celebrate this significant and incredibly hard-won milestone. At the centre is ‘Vicennial – 20 Years Of The Hot 8 Brass Band’, a special album mixing brand new tracks with newly recorded classic Hot 8 material, this jubilant LP finds the band on the form of their lives.

Across three albums – 2007’s ‘Rock With The Hot 8’, 2012’s Grammy-nominated ‘The Life & Times Of …’ and 2013’s ‘Tombstone’ – with a host of standout singles, including their iconic version of “Sexual Healing” alongside several other covers and equally impressive originals, Hot 8 Brass Band have told the story of their lives and their city like only they can.

One of the great New Orleans acts, Hot 8 have pushed on through a barely imaginable series of trials. The devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the separate deaths of four of their band members, and the horror of trumpeter Terrell “Burger” Batiste losing his legs in a car crash, conspired to test these men almost to breaking point. They honour their fallen friends and help to work towards the future of their community by putting their energies into positive projects at home as well as touring as much as they can. They march together and they play their music – a rambunctious yet elegant and super-tight mix of jazz, funk and hip hop – not merely as though, but because their lives depend on it.

The recording sessions for “Vicennial …” saw Hot 8 Brass Band welcoming former members back into the studio, as well as featuring performances from family members of their fallen bandmates (from siblings through to grandparents), giving even more meaning and poignancy to each track, whether new or a revision of one of their classics. Across the album, the vibrant new recordings capture the spirit of a community and make a strong statement of the band’s longevity, vitality and constant progress.

“Hot 8 has helped galvanise its community since 2005, captures both the edginess and transcendent beauty of life in its city” – The Wall Street Journal
“Hot 8 music is feel good music… music with a message. It’s life music.” – Hot 8 band leader, Bennie Pete
“Incendiary” -THE OBSERVER
“Irresistible” -MOJO
“Undiluted nourishment for the soul” – THE BIG ISSUE
“One of 2015’s finest albums” – SONGLINES
“Peerless” – METRO
“Those guys have definitely got the horns” – LAUREN LAVERNE (BBC 6MUSIC)
“Dope” – GILLES PETERSON (BBC 6MUSIC)

Various – Santa’s Funk &Soul Christmas Party Vol.2
Friday, December 20th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Santa’s Funk &Soul Christmas Party Vol.2

Image: 1585811 To be honest, Christmas music on earthly radio seems to be the worst in the Milky Way. Just imagine an alien picking up our radio waves on his journey through the galaxy – what would he think of our conception of Christmas music? Having such an impression of our cultural heritage, would he land on planet earth at all? Being extraordinarily tolerant and broad-minded, Paul did – and luckily, I got to meet him.

Paul admits – unlike other extraterrestrials – that the human race might be able to survive on its own. This makes me appreciate him more than other aliens. And when it comes to exceptional musical taste, Paul and I have even more in common. In the past centuries, Paul has celebrated innumerable Christmas seasons across the universe. Of all things, this year it is planet earth that has something seasonal to offer – something the galaxy has never seen before. Yuletide nerd Jan Kohlmeyer has put together an amazing collection of hip-shaking Christmas songs. Despite Paul’s advanced age and wealth of experience, he has never encountered such an impressive selection. Not in the entire universe.

Asking Paul about this compilation puts a big smile on his face: Santa’s Funk & Soul Christmas Party Vol. 2 is simply intergalactic! There is no better instruction manual for decorating the Christmas tree (Little Jimmy Thomas – Deck the Halls). It is a most righteous accompaniment to seeing the first snowflakes dancing through the air (Tina Roberts – Snow). Galactic garden gnomes will surely have a fling to Pearl Bailey’s Jingle Bells Cha Cha Cha, and all Martians will be snapping their fingers to Gee Whiz, it’s Christmas. At his 874th anniversary this December, Paul’s grandad will get up and boogie to Martin Mull’s Santafly just like Christopher Walken did in Weapon of Choice. Fortunately, Paul realised how crackbrained it is to celebrate Christmas without his beloved (Jimmy Jones & his Versatiles – Christmas is a drag without you baby), so he split to be back home in time and left me to pass on this farewell: Merry Christmas everybody!

Dr. Jule S. – Alien expert, November 2013

Nostalgia 77 aka Ben Lamdin first burst onto the scene with his heavy, new funk based sound in 2002. Unleashing a string of club friendly tracks on Tru Thoughts’ hugely influential 7Sevens imprint, he then followed suit with his seminal debut LP entitled “Songs For My Funeral” in February 2004. Swiftly moving away from the distinctive raw funk of his previous singles, “Songs For My Funeral” saw him branching out to explore a more downtempo and jazz infused style. The success of the album thus encouraged him to progress with this approach for his new album offering, “The Garden” (Tru Thoughts). A style which he describes as “a combination of soul and jazz composition with computer based production techniques” …
