The New Birth Brass Band is at the forefront of the recent New Orleans brass band renaissance. The band fuses hip-hop, Mardi Gras Indian chants, funk, and modern jazz with age old traditional sounds. Although all under 30, the members of New Birth are all jazz veterans and have played with everyone from Wynton Marsalis to Dizzy Gillespie. The New Birth Brass Band has recently gained national acclaim with features on MTV and articles in several high profile national publications. D-Boy, their new NYNO album, is an all out jam.
