Mixing vibrant instrumental pieces with simmering, scorching vocal numbers (performed by guests Chuck D., Bettye LaVette, G. Love, Ivan Neville and Guru), the Dirty Dozen has translated the songs from Whatâ€™s Going On into its own music language. The new recordings are infused with the powerful feelings resulting from the bandâ€™s own experiences with Hurricane Katrina, the subsequent massive flooding and the devastation of their homes and communities.
This should be a great night of soul and funk.
