Fiona's Comments

Artistes and whomen beans will get down with lyrics in the likeness of James Brown/Johnny 'Guitar' Watson/Eddie Harris and a full on horn section. Happier than a Pharrell video...possibly. #takeitthere2014

About the Album

Frank Macchia has a new jazz/funk CD out with a huge band that will bring a huge smile to your face! Picture a triple sized New Orleans Brass Band: six saxophones, three trumpets, three trombones, tuba, electric guitar, drums and percussion playing all new original music that will have you shaking, rattling and rolling with modern rhythms and funky goodness. Add a touch of humor in the form of whacky lyrics delivered by Macchia and you have Grease Mechanix! "I'm So Damn Mad!" is an ode to getting old, and features solos by Eric Marienthal on alto sax, Walt Fowler on trumpet, with Peter Erskine on drums and Bill Reichenbach on tuba. Frank does the lead vocal and the band puts on their best James Brown groove!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
