New Orleans' Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band release their fifth LP, 'On The Spot'. In true Hot
8 style, this album pairs hard-hitting, heart-on-sleeve sentiment with party-fuelling beats, hooks and
grooves; raw funk and charismatic hip hop vocals mix with Big Easy jazz elegance. Expect unshakable
horn riffs and bubbling bass as the record transports you right into the centre of an electrifying Hot 8
The title of the new album refers to the glorious, rare moment in a New Orleans parade when the band
stops to take a break but keeps noodling with their instruments for the crowd. Vibing, keeping the energy
up, when they're completely in the moment they sync up and the magic happens - a new tune is
created: On The Spot. Their fifth LP sees Hot 8 committing this live sound and spirit to record like never
before - note the exclamation captured on tape at end of the title track: "Did we just make that up?!"
These 11 tracks have helped the band get through their up and down moments; 'On The Spot' honours
fallen friends and the city of New Orleans, and showcases new heights achieved after coming back
from the deepest lows. "We still break down a lot," says bandleader and tuba player Bennie Pete, "but
now it's tears of joy. We keep everything in our hearts, but we keep on."
