New Orleans Nightcrawlers – “S/T” – []

domitype   1/18/2009   CD, Jazz

This is a New Orleans Street-funk/Jazz band in the basic style of the Dirty Dozen and Rebirth with a bit of a difference: They are not little black kids from the wards. They are skilled and inventive studio quality musicians who really know their way around their horns. Kevin Clark and Barney Floyd are both powerful high note trumpeters and Matt Perrine is both fast and solid on the Sousaphone. The rest of the band in equally good.
There are no really weak tracks on this CD, but I especially like their takes of the traditional “Bourbon Street Parade” and “Just a Little While to Stay Here.”
