Album Notes
The Transcendental Brass Band is pleased to announce the release of their CD Hi Fi Digital Stereophonic Studio Album First Take. The 9 song recording was tracked,mixed and mastered @ Nettleingham Audio in April / June 2012. The TBB mix it up with their soulful trademark "Freestyle Street Funk" with tunes like the New Orleans classic "Bourbon Street Parade"all the way over to the Afro Pop of the Daktari's, John Scofield,Stanton Moore,Bob Dylan to the arena Rocking "160 Million Dollar Chinese Man"

The title First Take says it all about this project as it was a studio sit down affair recorded without a click track and few overdubs. Rhythm tracks and solos were played together on the first take to capture the feeling of a Live TBB performance. The studio - sit down environment gives the band a chance to stretch out with full guitar set up and drum kit, along with clarinet. The result is a funky and cohesive presentation of the bands musicianship, versatility and butt shaking grooves. It's modern. It's old school. It's freestyle. Shake it and dance and your ears will feel happy with "Horn filled Goodness." A bit of NOLA meets FELA , Jimi and Roland Kirk, " In the Tradition "

The Transcendental Brass Band could well be spotted on any given corner in New Orleans as street musicians— seven dudes blowing the kind of crazy, funked-out sound that provides the perfect soundtrack for swilling bourbon in the Big Easy. In Portland, they let 'em inside. Transcendental’s sound harks back to the glory days of brass bands while providing funkadelic basslines to get asses shaking. It’s a timeless sound, revamped into the present with an immediacy that makes it fresh as a steaming po’ boy. A touch of funk, a smidge of jazz, and some sprinklings of ska, hip-hop and freeform pop: It all adds up to a heady brew of horn-filled goodness. Make sure your dancing shoes are broken in for this show. The Oregonian
