With perfect timing for the DVD release of Season One of the HBO series Treme and just a week or so before the start of Season Two, comes this newest release by the musical soundtrack for New Orleans rhythm - The Rebirth Brass Band. Though original member Kermit Ruffins left the band years ago, original founders - the Frazier brothers are still there along with longtime member Glen Andrews and, in the 28 years (can it really be that long?) since the band formed, they haven't lost a beat. (NO pun intended here.)

There's music composed by the band members ("I Like It Like That" is truly funky) and the trombones are out front on "AP Touro", a song written by Andrews cousin Troy, better known as Trombone Shorty. These guys are even gutsy enough to start off the album with their take on the Dorothy Fields/ Jimmy McHugh chestnut "Exactly Like You". Its like they lit a fire under the arrangement! Another highlight is NOLa legendary producer and band leader Dave Bartholomew's "Shrimp and Gumbo" which shows how the NOLa beat mixed with jazz riffs to create its own gumbo. "Feelin' Free" is a seven-minute-plus take on the Jermaine Jackson song.

Mardi Gras may be over for this year but its always time for a New Orleans party. Rebirth is now on Mark Samuels' NOLa-based Basin Street Records label and they are sure to get the promotion all of BSR's fine roster of artists has received. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rebirth still blows doors off quite nicely July 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD
We live in an era of great brass bands, a time when people argue over who's the best and global brands sponsor grand competitions. New kids use horns to escape violence while old heads lead protest marches and school programs. As successful as any outfit in the last 30 years, the Rebirth charge forward through this landscape armed with their signature mix of power and filth.

The new record begins with "Exactly Like You," a standard and the opposite of your typical brass band boast. Then things get grimy, with the songwriting team of Phil Frazier and Glen Andrews telling us how a certain somebody likes it (front and back) over speeding horns and snare. "The Dilemma" gives us that Rebirth swagger and shadow, a missive from a Tuesday night second set. That's a compliment to producer Tracey Freeman. We get short doses without the meandering or filler of a live album, but with a balanced fullness that never sounds overly brightened or packaged.

The Troy Andrews-penned "AP Touro" allows the fellas to ascend, cut and pound. At their best, the Rebirth sound like martial swordsmen who group into unison when needed, then race out to new vistas or broaden shoulders to hold down the fort (and of course, taking time to stop at the corner bar). We are rarely in unknown territory on Rebirth of New Orleans, but the album transmits the ferocity that defines the contemporary lineup, with fewer words and more minor keys.

They test themselves in "Feelin' Free," the crossflows of the horns working in sunny contrasts with wild percussion, sounding Caribbean. Overall, the band resists experimentation with new forms, seemingly more interested in blowing the doors off than opening new ones. And, as this record attests, the Rebirth still blows doors off quite nicely.--Brian Boyles, OffBeat Magazine, April 2011 issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn fine brass band March 29, 2012
By Michael
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I caught Rebirth at the Gasparilla Music Fest in Tampa, then immediately bought their new album. This is a solid brass band, talented as hell, just unrefined enough to be "authentic", and the tracks are a pretty good mix of traditional New Orleans brass band stuff and the new Rebirth Brass Band sound. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Brass Band CD Ever! December 13, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The New Orleans brass band expereince doesn't always translate well in the studio, but this one raises the roof just the like band does every Tuesday night at the Maple Leaf Bar in NOLA. GREAT from start to finish, they never let up. I have a lot of albums by brass bands and they can disappoint, or get it right for only a few cuts, but this one will be hard to top by any band in New Orleans. It richly deserved the Grammy award it received.
