NOLA SUNDAYS featuring Revolutionary Snake Ensemble Trio
January 20 @ 5:00 pm
The Revolutionary Snake Ensemble is a funk/street beat improvisational brass band performing a unique blend of original and traditional music.
NYC Jazz Record writes that “Revolutionary Snake Ensemble has been putting its unique and somewhat twisted twist on the New Orleans brass band tradition for more than 25 years…hard-partying avant-funk, with boisterous soloing…I Want That Sound! is a strong example of how Ken Field and the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble continue to push the brass band tradition forward in an entirely original way, all the while making music that’s a heck of a lot of fun.”
According to the New York Times, “This Boston-area band puts a premium on Mardi Gras-style rhythm – the opening track of its new album, Live Snakes, is aptly titled Parade – but also pursues a sinuous, writhing counterpoint, in ways that justify the band’s name.”
And the Boston Herald adds that “People tend to think of second line bands – brass bands steeped in New Orleans traditions – as instant party starters. It’s a great compliment, maybe the best compliment ever, but it limits the sonic and emotional range of these bands. Revolutionary Snake Ensemble can absolutely get a party started. But on the local horn collective’s fourth album, I Want That Sound!, the players also explore the wild outerlands of jazz.”
