That Youngblood Brass cover of Rihanna “Umbrella “ is nice if a tad too relaxed.

Hmmm, wonder if Jordan has some fave New Orleans releases for 2018?

Man, I wish I did, but there's been a dearth of (good) brass band albums lately. The older bands either haven't been putting out much or I haven't been feeling it, like a certain band with a UK label (sorry).

The younger bands sound amazing on the street but aren't translating that to records for the most part. Big 6 put out a mixtape, but they sounded so much better at the second line: https://soundcloud.com/user-60647372/micheal-jackson-black-or-white

TBC posted a couple of nice singles (with Kabuki on trumpet, nice to hear him again), hopefully they'll put out a record next year:

On the traditional side, I like this Mark Braud album with Herlin Riley on drums, especially this cut. None of his stuff is on streaming services but this one is on Soundcloud for some reason.

I'm playing at this in a few weeks, apparently the first brass band-focused festival in New Orleans (can that be true?):

TBC, Stooges, Hot 8, Cheeky Blakk, DJ Jubilee, second line dance-off, it sounds like heaven.

Amazing weekend, from playing at the brass band fest and seeing all the bands in one spot (+ Phil Frazier getting honored, that was emotional because he's not in the best of health), to playing a party with the Stooges BB, to the second line on Sunday.

Put some little bits up on instagram, there's a lot more on facebook etc.

Only tangentially related, and I'm not sure if this stuff is your thing at all, but Jordan have you caught Naughty Professor? One of my favorite discoveries at Jazzfest this year. Super talented musicians, and tight arrangements that go a lot of different places.
