Street Music is the second full-length album release for New Orleans legendary STOOGES BRASS BAND. It showcases the band at a creative peak, performing some of the best known tunes from live shows, including the powerful tribute to trombonist "Shotgun Joe" Williams called Why They Had To Kill Him and their version of the O'Jays' classic Family Reunion entitled appropriately, Stooges Reunion. The audio of Street Music is bright and vibrant like the front row of a live show while capturing the depth and interplay between musicians and their instruments that is only possible in a studio session.The urban brass band sound played by the Stooges follows in a direct line from Congo Square in New Orleans' 6th Ward (Treme) incorporating funk, modern jazz, and hip hop. This is literally street music, and the Stooges stay grounded in those streets, playing second lines on many a Sunday afternoon throughout the year.
