Jack Brass Band and Lulu's Playground

The Jack Brass Band stands out no matter what it does, since it’s the Twin Cities’ only New Orleans-styled, second-line-ready brass ensemble to actually make a name for itself in the Crescent City. With its latest album, “For Your Body,” the seven-man party machine sets itself up as even more of an anomaly, blowing out a fun blend of sexy R&B standards ranging from Usher’s “There Goes My Baby” and R. Kelly’s “Freaky in the Club” to more vintage fare like Carl Carlton’s “She’s a Bad Mama Jama” and Mel Walter’s “Got My Whiskey.” As if to show the JBB can hang with the rest, though, the collection ends with a far more obvious but no less enjoyable tear through the Meters’ “They All Asked for You.” Gypsy jazz ensemble Lulu’s Playground opens the release party.
