Album Notes
"The Hornheads have the most perfect, stanky funk, tight-ass horn section ever!"
-Ricky Peterson - producer, singer/songwriter, keyboardist

Since recording "5 Heads Are Better Than 1" (1997), we've kept very busy performing and working on over 100 CD projects with many talented musicians. Fortunately, we found enough time to make another Hornheads CD. We probably spent as much time joking and laughing during the recording sessions as we did playing. "Fat Lip" represents the pure energy and spirit of the Hornheads.

This group of extraordinarily talented horn players has been gathering international acclaim from artists and critics alike, since 1991. Top session players all, members of the Hornheads have performed and/or recorded with artists such as Prince, Janet Jackson, Rod Stewart, Babyface, James Brown, Jimmy Jam, Aretha Franklin, Pedro Abrunhosa, Louie Bellson, Lenny Kravitz, Ray Charles, Maceo Parker, Sammy Davis Jr., Clark Terry , Dizzy Gillespie, Tony Bennett, Doc Severinsen, and many others.

While members of Prince and the NPG (1991-2000), the Hornheads recorded on more than 20 CDs and performed for over 2 million concert goers in 20 countries. Q Magazine, London, described them as a "peerless horn section...playing in bare brilliant syncopation, punching with staccato precision beyond science or synclavier. Prince splashes their insouciant versatility all over the set list."

The Hornheads are back with all their talent and souls. The album is awesome.
The Hornheads are back and they're cool! I enjoyed every single note off "Fat lip". The sound is thick and pleasant. Music just for horns is not necessarily easy to listen to, but the variety inside the cd is big and you get curios while you're listening. I really liked the two medleys: the Hornheads managed to fuse all the different songs in one whole that keeps your attention alive to see how they are going to merge everything.

In Minnesota we have the Mayo Clinic, the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness, Jessie "The Body" Ventura... and The Hornheads! If you don't love Fat Lip you're a Fat Head!
There now.

Great sound, thanks
Such a great discovery! My husband played with Kenni for a summer with the Minnetonka Jazz Band and remembers his sound well. We would love to hear them live.

EXCELLENT!!! Fresh!!! Creative!!! Oozing talent and skill!
These folks are so talented, words fail me. This is a totally unique group. They are fresh. What they are doing requires immense talent and mastery of the insturments, and they demonstrate that handsomely. This CD in particular has some of the most imaginative arrangements of pop tunes and originals I've ever heard. My hat is off to this group. BUY THIS CD! Just do it! Don't think about. Don't discuss it. Just BUY it!

When I first heard a cut from the CD played on the radio,I knew this belonged in my collection.Since listening to the entire CD...I'm not disappointed.

Talk about energy!
I have another CD of the Hornheads and have seen them perform - this recording proves how tight and talented they are. Great variety of music and original writing, wonderful!


Fabulous sound and arrangements
My first exposure to the Hornheads and am wondering why it took me so long to find these people! This CD demonstrates the committment and energy needed to pull off a performance like this. Time to buy other Hornhead releases...I'm sold.

Imaginative writing, clean ensemble playing, soaring solos! What else would you
I first heard the Hornheads at a TC Jazz Society event a number of years ago. They awed me with their amazing acapella playing, and I have been a fan ever since. Their CD, Fat Lip, takes me back to that great discovery and only increases my crush on Kathy whose playing soars through the stratosphere--while she's standing on one leg! And, yes, the guys are OK, too.
