Album Notes
Sounding tighter than ever, the two- or three-dozen member collective has miraculously managed to channel its raucous sweat, swing and swagger for home and headphone. Newbies can enjoy this party-ready record for its own sake instead of just as a pale souvenir of a full color concert.

The disk presents almost the full range of M4’s diverse sounds—Mexican brass band (“Contada Ridiculata”), odd-meter Balkan party gypsies (“Simplon Cocek”), throwback Latin big-band jazz (“Dynomite”), classic funk (“Freestyle for Miles,” which owes as much to James Brown as to its namesake), New Orleans second line (“Ninth Ward Calling”), gospel rave up (“Gospel”) and unclassifiable hybrids. If Herb Alpert were still running the Tijuana Brass, “Happiness” would be the perfect cover.

High school marching band meets Armageddon
OK, so the headline was meant to get your attention. The post-Road Warrior feel of the band works great in person so I just imagine it when I'm listening to the album which I do frequently. I bought this album immediately after seeing them in person in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The beats and rhythm of this band is mesmerizing and forward propelling. Wakes me up in the morning, keeps me going in the afternoon and revs me up in the evening. The sound is sharp and soulful.... purposeful....thanks to the band for uplifting and move your butt tunes.


Diversity In the Groove
Rise Up is a collection of different genres: Eastern European gypsy brass, George Clintonesque funk, New Orleans jazz, House, and so on. They are a big band with a big sound. Fused with enthusiasm, high energy and tight rhythm, the collection holds together from the beginning, with the snappy step of the NOLA-styled opener, Ninth Ward Calling, to the funk-propelled humor of Yak Attack,the cowbell infectiousness of Wet Nap, and the joyous finale, the singalong Happiness.
