Before the Dirty Dozen came along, New Orleans brass bands played a predictable repertoire, mostly for an older generation. Then, the Dozen added funk, modern jazz and r&b elements, bringing a new level of musicianship and excitement to the streets, reinventing the brass band style and spurring a youthful brass band renaissance that continues today. On their only live recording, the band is captured in peak form playing many of their best-known songs. A New Orleans party classic!
