NOLA Tradition Adds DJ

By no means an “electronic” album, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band‘s forthcoming Medicated Music (Ropeadope Records), due out April 23, features the New Orleans-based horn ensemble with a host of guests, including, on two tracks, DJ Logic. Logic (born Jason Kibler) may be the most in-demand session DJ around, especially in the jazz- and jam-band arena(s). He’s toured and/or recorded with such acts as Ratdog, Medeski Martin & Wood, Karl Denson and Chris Whitley. Though only a small portion of the Dirty Dozen’s diverse album, his contributions should be of interest to anyone intrigued by the inclusion of turntables in live, improvisationally oriented performance. (On a related note, check out the Flyin’ the Koop, the Blue Thumb/Verve solo debut from drummer Stanton Moore of the New Orleans-based band Galactic; released in late February, it’s largely a groove-based jazz album, but a few of the tracks feature Moore triggering loops.)
