Jon Batiste and Stay Human+Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
Pianist and melodica master Batiste, whose family helped inspire HBO's Treme, leads Stay Human (alto sax, tuba, drums), which updates New Orleans's Preservation Hall sound with sophisticated smarts and the sort of grit that would lead to an EP recorded in the New York subway. The awesome Hypnotic Brass Ensemble consists of eight brothers whose music contains R&B grooves, heavy-metal DNA, and their father's experience in Sun Ra's Arkestra.
