The Heavyweights Brass Band: Stir Crazy (album review by Christa V.)

Amazingly the title is not a direct reference to the global COVID-19 pandemic, as this was recorded in March of 2020 right before lockdown began! This is the fourth album from The Heavyweights Brass Band, and it just oozes energy and excitement! All of the tracks are bops from innovative covers like “Rehab” to originals like the title track. True to the name of the band, all of the horn solos are stellar and the players mix together as though they were a single unit and not a full band. The album also shows real breadth, from New Orleans jazz to more soulful tracks. All in all, a true joy to listen to and experience!  Favorite tracks: 2, 6, 7
