Interview: David Levine (LowDown Brass Band)

Chicago’s LowDown Brass Band deftly synthesizes the gritty sounds of Chicago with the high energy second-line street beat of the Crescent City. The group brandishes a powerful brass frontline of trumpets, trombones, and saxophones with a funky backline of drums and sousaphone. Combining the poetic ferocity of Billa Camp with stellar vocal harmonies, adventurous improvisation, movement, and grooves, LowDown Brass Band creates an infectious and diverse sound that has something for every listener.

Review of BadBadNotGood’s “IV” at Modern Vinyl

bbng iv cover
From the opening notes of “And That, Too,” IV was not only instantly recognizable as BadBadNotGood (the newest artist featured through Vinyl Me Please and their monthly subscription program) but also an album defining the quartet as an act that’s more than just “that jazz band that plays hip-hop.” There’s a point on that opening cut where the CS-60 synthesizer rides a low note for so long, I felt like I was hearing the voice of God.
