Corey Henry, the former leader of the Lil' Rascals Brass band and current lead player in New Orleans jam band Galactic, will hold a release party on July 9th at Tipitina's in New Orleans for "Lapeitah," his debut release on Louisiana Red Hot Records.
On the new record, the Treme trombonist who has created some of the most popular original songs in the second line scene teams up with Pimps of Joytime producer Brian J to enhance his existing brass/funk sound. The album features guest appearances by Corey Glover from Living Colour and Greg Thomas from George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, as well as one of the last known recordings of the late Trumpet Black and a collaboration with Henry's daughter Jazz. Fusing both new and old generations, it highlights Henry's trademark blasting trombone sounds and reflects the influence of growing up learning jazz music in the Treme neighborhood.
The CD release party is July 9th, at 9:00 p.m., at Tipitina's at 501 Napoleon Avenue in New Orleans. "Lapeitah" is currently available on Louisiana Red Hot Records.
