The Hot 8 Brass Band "Rock With The Hot 8 Brass Band" (2007)

The Hot 8 are one of the young generations of New Orleans Brass Bands.  As such, this album seamlessly blends jazz, hip hop, R&B, & gospel into an exciting melange unique to New Orleans.  There's a simple, documentary style production involved, which allows for the party atmosphere from a live performance to come through.  It's 71 minutes of a hot greasy funky party.  It's not the same as seeing a Brass Band live, but it comes as close as I've heard.
