Big Sam's Funky Nation: Feet On The Floor

Big Sam's Funky Nation hail from New Orleans, so it's no wonder that they can come up with the very danceable funk jazz hybrid Feet On The Floor single. Big Sam Williams leads the way with his trombone, with trumpet Andrew "Da Phessah" Baham ridding shotgun. It's got community singing styled vocals, a few whoops and a back beat that might be considered as illegal in stuck-up circles. Press play. And repeat. And repeat. And repeat.

Feet On The Floor will be released on Ropeadope on September 25th. Buy it from iTunes or Bandcamp.

Big Sam's Funky Nation:
Big Sam Williams: trombone
Andrew "Da Phessah" Baham: trumpet
