Rob O. Interpreters as well as innovators, this is not your typical brass band. There's some great sounding jazz with a whole lotta lung power! If you love horn players like I do, this is the album to have. Music you can groove to, making your spirit jump for joy. Looking forward to playing this LOUD on my stereo to experience the full throttle effect.

marco I don't typically go for brass bands, but I bucked up for this tight ass shit. Favorite track: No Diggity.

Sam Tweaks Punchy brass stabs and thumping rhythmic drums - No Diggity drops and you can help but go gangsta - jazz style and Use Somebody is well worth a spin Favorite track: No Diggity.
