New Orleans Swamp Donkeys
Independent, 2017, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Dixieland
O’s Notes: The New Orleans Swamp Band is 6-piece Traditional Jass Band that captures the high-energy jazz sound of the early 1900s emanating from the Crescent City. Slightly Concussed is a 2-disc set featuring the band in two configurations performing Live at De Melkbus in Dordrecht, Netherlands during 2015 and 2016. Samuel Friend (banjo), Joshua Marotta (perc) and director James Williams (t, vocals) play in both bands. Haruka Kikuchi (tb), Connor Stewart (sax) and Wessell Anderson IV (tuba) join them in 2015. Miles Lyons (tb), Marcus Miller (sax) and Edwin Brown (tuba) play with the sextet in 2016. The sound is a crisp and accurate depiction of the era. Williams is quite a character. We enjoyed the set as munch as the crowd!
