The JBB hits on all cylinders with their second full-length CD, 'You Don't Know Me."
Packed with 13 tracks that will make you think you're drinking a Budweiser and watching a Secondline come by on the streets of the Treme neighborhood in New Orleans, this CD is ready to roll.
Keith Frazier, co-leader of New Orleans' ambassadors of funk 'n brass, the Rebirth Brass Band, wrote the liner notes, and here's an excerpt:
"If you didn't know any better, you would think these guys were born and raised in New Orleans...After listening to this CD, if you don't know now, you will know that the Jack Brass Band has crossed over into the brotherhood of New Orleans brass bands."
A recent review of a live performance by Peter Scholtes, City Pages, had this to say:
"JBB are more than a unique sound in Guitar Town: Having mastered the unstoppable beat they love, they got the floor jumping within three songs...and coaxing a dozen female dancers onstage for the finale."
They have also been recently featured by Chris Roberts on Minnesota Public Radio, (MPR).
