Please don’t think that this big brass band is jumping on the HBO Treme bandwagon. This band has been around for generations in the Treme neighborhood. It predates that show by decades much as this music predates modern jazz, blues, and rock `n’ roll. They’re as much “the real deal” as you’ll find these days. The Treme Brass band have a new record called I’ve Got A Big Fat Woman.
This song, “Back Of Town Blues”, features trumpet solos, jubilant bluesy vocals and a Fat Tuesday meets Mardi Gras attitude. You can buy the new record here.
