Description

Low-down and dirty jazz goes right back to the early 1900s in Storyville; after the bands had played their hot tunes in the evening for dancing couples, the musicians would head off to the after-hours joints and play a less energetic but more bluesy kind of music, enabling them and their late-night audiences to get through to the early hours of the morning without suffering total exhaustion. And nobody in New Orleans laid into the blues so low down and dirty as Buddy Bolden, whose Funky Butt became a staple in the repertoire of the city’s early jazz bands. Jacksonville, Florida, 1960. Charles ‘Hungry’ Williams mentors young Clayton Fillyau after he had just joined the James Brown band: ‘I don’t care where you put it on those drums, remember where ‘1’ is and you’ll never lose the time.’
