Formed in 1982 by young men from the Tremé - Tremé, a neighborhood in the city of New Orleans - who'd played together in high school, The Rebirth Brass Band built their fame via recordings, tours, and famous alums who bridge generations and genres.
After The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, the Rebirth Brass Band is perhaps the best contemporary New Orleans ensemble working in vintage marching band style. The group formed in the early '80s while they were still in school. In the latter half of the decade, the band gained of the critics and the public alike. Since the late '80s, The Rebirth Brass Band has cut albums for Rounder and Arhoolie, utilizing multiple trombone/trumpet/tuba instrumentation. They also play booming uptempo tunes, spirituals, rags, marching numbers, and originals, doing them all with a traditional feel and contemporary sensibility.
Originally co-founded by Phil Frazier (tuba/sousaphone), his brother Keith (bass drum), and Kermit Ruffins (trumpet), the band's lineup expands or contracts according to the needs of each recording.
Rebirth of New Orleans' lineup is made up of Derrick Tabb on snare, Byron Bernard and Vincent Broussard on sax, Stafford Agee and Corey Henry on trombone, Glen Andrews and Derrick Shezbie on trumpet, plus the founding Frazier brothers.
Composer David Bartholomew and guest vocalist Lionel Delpit appear in the credits. Guest rappers, vocalists, and percussionists have appeared whenever the material dictates, but hybridized arrangements of Dixieland swing, uptempo rags, gospel, and Mardi Gras tunes are easily handled by the group's core.

I bought this CD as a present for my father and he insisted that I borrow it as the music was so good. Although I have heard a French brass ensemble perform a lot of this music with enthusiastic gusto in a live setting on numerous occasions, there is an energy and robustness about Rebirth which , in my opinion, leaves their competitors standing. As much as I love the work of the other New Orleans Brass Band, the Dirty Dozen, Rebirth's music is far earthier and definately seems to take it's cues from the musics that eminate from the street. There is an an element of this band being extremely loose but this is countered by some of the most infectious grooves you can hear in jazz in 2011. Although the anticedents of Rebirth go right back to the very origins of jazz itself, this feels far more contemporary and authentic than anything Wynton Marsalis has produced. In fact, Rebirth are the antithesis of Wynton's more cold approach to jazz heritage, refracting the music into something that is living and of it's time. They sound different from the kind of revivalist jazz you hear but the likes of Papa Celestin would immediately recognise this as his kind of music.

Until the mid-60's when the likes of Lester Bowie and Albert Ayler started to show an interest in more archaic forms of jazz, the history of the music had tended to see a change to a more European and perhaps cerebral approach. Although I am a massive fan of modern jazz, the timbre of early jazz definately help define for me an important ingredient of what the music should be about and wild abandon of Rebirth's playing demonstrates why the best jazz has that degree of abrasiveness that immediately separates jazz from other forms of music.
