A Strong Effort

"Formerly known as the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, this swinging aggregation from the Crescent City changes its sound as well as its name on this release, smoothing things out a bit, adding some guitar and keyboards to their musical gumbo, as if they had spent some time listening to some Crusaders albums and decided to add just a touch of L.A. hipness and sophistication to their basic New Orleans sound. Still, their basic musical integrity shines through, and Ears to the Wall is a musical delight. These guys have made a number of fine recordings over the last several years, but this is probably their most consistently strong effort from cut to cut, and I can only hope that it reaches the larger audience that the group deserves to reach. Tasty!"
