90's Hit Parade #40

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band - Old School

I included this on my best of the 00's post, but it's actually from late '99, so I'm double dipping. If you like the funky, second-line music on HBO's Treme, this captures that New Orleans feel better than anything I've ever heard, and keeps it up for an epic 12 minutes! Horns blast, drums thump, and the whole things sways back and forth like a drunk trying to find his way home from Bourbon Street. This is one of my favorite long-form jams, maybe right behind "Sister Ray."
