    Mobetta & SOUL'D U OUT are plannning to keep the party going all night long! This will be an epic night of Music starting out with Big Sam's Funky Nation with special guest Sister Sparrow. The show will be filled with guest and musical surprises. Come celebrate with us NOLA style! "Even when he plays in a straight-ahead band, virtuosic trumpeter Maurice Brown can't turn his back on the electric funk and hip-hop that have shaped his generation of jazz players. And when he sails outside the mainstream--as he does with this new sextet--those influences make the trip intoxicating. Soul'd U Out gives full vent to his passion for contemporary pop--neosoul, funk, rock, psychedelia, and especially hip-hop, which makes itself felt not just in the beats but in the sampled electronics and Brown's melodic trumpet hooks (which other people ought to be sampling themselves). Of course, his love for jazz is evident too: the tune "Funk Hop" quotes from Miles Davis's famous 1966 recording Miles Smiles amid its tossed salad of waka-waka guitar, James Brown rhythms, and radio static. And the song relies on the sweetness of tone and playful phrasing that have made Brown one to watch since his high school years in Chicago. Though his music now bristles with the almost manic energy of New York, his post-Katrina home base, it retains its youthful soul and liberating grit. --Chicago Reader

"Maurice Brown always seems to be in the right place at the right time, which is good because he is always welcome and often needed. With his horn he is able to musically go anywhere and he is a pleasure to work with."
