Rebirth Brass Band


This eight-piece, three-decades-old metal outfit makes a big brassy noise that blasts asunder the borders separating funk, jazz, gospel, and R&B, all in the name of second-line celebration. Their new Move Your Body is as disciplined and hard-grooving as ever, although I’m still a little nostalgic for the 2001 rap album that introduced “Rockin’ on Your Stinkin’ Ass” and “Pop That Pussy.”
