BACK IN STOCK!!! THE HOT 8 BRASS BAND present their full length album. Hailing from New Orleans, the Hot 8 formed in 1995 and are the first US signing to Tru Thoughts. Their unmistakable fusion of modern styles and brass standards transcends both genres and audiences alike. Deeply affected by Hurricane Katrina, the members of the Hot 8 have been actively involved in both the political and social issues surrounding the aftermath. The Hot 8 are well respected members of the musical community, and are dedicated to anti-violence campaigns, using their vibrant, energetic music to project this message. Four members of the band have died, two of which because of violent acts on the streets of New Orleans, but their loyalty to their community combined with the unmistakable Jazz spirit has earned them enormous credibility with their audiences and fellow musicians. The Hot 8 recently appeared in the poignant documentary ‘When the Levees Broke’ by Spike Lee, pushing their profile as one of New Orleans’ most respected bands into the spotlight. Rock with The Hot 8 combines the traditional with the contemporary—Brass band covers of classics such as “Sexual Healing” and Snoop Dogg’s “What’s My Name?” along with original material by Hot 8. This album is a prime example of how traditional styles can be brought to new audiences, the Hot 8 bring an instant ‘cool’ to Brass Band music whilst maintaining it’s credibility as one of New Orleans greatest treasures. UK import.
