DuPont Brass Music Education

A decade after their genesis playing for pedestrians to raise tuition funds, DuPont Brass isteaching us how it’s done via their album “Music Education”. Class is in session ‘roundmidnight’ as the opening track of the same name reimagines Thelonious Monk’s mostnotable composition. An album title which alludes to a musical conservatory is fitting given thefact that DuPont Brass leverages several of our most prominent musical traditions. Trap drumsand vocal ad libs put a modern spin on the Jazz Standard, ‘Round Midnight’. Neo Soul meetsEarth Wind and Fire on “Bring That Ass Here”. And ‘Homecoming’ serves up soothing R&B. Themost impressive thing about this album is how eclectic it is without sacrificing quality. They arejacks of all trades, and they have mastered them as well.
