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.

who won

No declared winner, and different styles , but I might give Big 6 a slight edge ( shhhh, don’t tell any DC locals I said that)

curmudgeon, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 17:12 (four months ago) link

Just saw the 2018 video of Hot 8 Brass doing Joy Division “Love Will Tear Us Apart (again)”. It’s also on their 2019 Take Cover ep that appears to be available from bandcamp but not on Spotify

A 2019 movie doc called Up From the Streets , that purports to cover all of New Orleans music history is gonna show at a DC indie doc fest in March. Terrence Blanchard is the narrator.

Don’t usually agree with them but here’s Offbeat magazine’s best of 2019 that includes Soul Rebels “Poetry in Motion” album as their best brass band winner. Rebels also won for best video

Two weekends in a row of second lines and seeing all the bands, it was amazing, too much to say. NOLA Brass Fest was a really beautiful event this year.

Putting this here because no one else will care: a few months ago I picked up a $1.99 copy of Doc Cheatham and Nicholas Payton (on Verve, 1997) and man I love this. It helps that I saw Doc at Jazzfest around that time, but it’s a super lovely mix of ballads and swingin’ tunes, with my new favorite version of “Stardust.” I’ve returned to it again and again. Best two bucks spent recently.

That sounds great

curmudgeon, Saturday, 28 March 2020 05:03 (six days ago) link

I didn’t know there’s a Grammy for best jazz solo, but Doc won it in 1998 for his solo on “Stardust.”

DBA was such a godsend when it opened, one of the few places to get a craft brew when Abita was pretty much the only game in town. I consumed many Anchor Liberty Ales there. I agree, Frenchmen Street is a much crazier place than it was twenty years ago, but I hope they can continue.

Oh, no! RIP. He closed out last year in the jazz tent at Fest with all his sons, but I didn’t go. Opted for Al Green.
