Mardi Gras Warmup

Ah, a warm-up. For those of us who've been uncharacteristically blanketed in snow for the last week or so, that sounds nice. And who better for a little audio warm-up in the week before Mardi Gras than the Rebirth Brass Band? These guys have been rocking the New Orleans horn thing hard since 1982. Check out this track from their new album, Rebirth of New Orleans.

Great stuff. Another great album is the New Orleans funk album, titled simply, "New Orleans Funk."

And Ian, don't neglect the Wild Magnolias, or the Wild Tchoupitoulas -- N.O. is such a rich place for great music, and I'm particular to that horn-driven funk. Particularly on a cold late winter morning in the Pacific Northwest...
