King James & The Special Men - Act Like You Know album download
The debut release from King James & The Special Men captures the spirit of New Orleans in a bottle. After years of performing residency, they’ve released their first album. Act Like You Know is only six tracks, but left us feeling like we’d attended every Fat Tuesday party in the city, and all the after parties as well. The band is made up of Jimmy King James Horn (vocals, guitar); Ben Polcer (piano); Robert Snow (bass); John Rodli (guitar); Chris Davis (drums); Jason Mingledorff and Travis Blotzky (tenor sax); Dominick Grillo (baritone sax); Scott Frock (trumpet); and Jason Jurzak (tuba).
The album was recorded at House of 1000Hz Studios in the 9th Ward and engineered by Andrew Goat Gilchrest. What’s inside is more than the sum of it’s parts, however. Act Like You Know opens on Special Man Boogie, a raucous Louisiana -style hello, with surf guitar and a clave rhythm calling you in off the street. King James and The Special Men are doing some grown shit, like playing Tonder Festival in Denmark, and recording albums by people and communities of color in New Orleans to further this tradition, in the spirit of those that have gone before. Look for those come Mardi Gras, for now you can pick up Act Like You Know on vinyl, or anywhere music is sold online, July 21st. Promenade WordPress theme by AudioTheme.

9th Ward Blues, which closes King James & the Special Men’s mini-album, is plenty long and plenty wild: It starts out as a cross of Indian chants with punk rock (the main riff isn’t far from the Stooges’ 1969 ) then erupts into a brass band jam that enters free-flowing Sun Ra territory before it’s through. You have to be in the right frame of mind to take in all 14 minutes-i. not sitting down at a computer writing about it-but this is one exhausting performance.
And I haven't heard a time quite as good as King James & The Special Men's debut album, Act Like You Know, in quite awhile.

King James & The Special Men consists of: Jimmy Horn (vocals and guitar), Ben Polcer (piano), Robert Snow (bass), John Rodli (guitar), Chris Davis (drums), Jason Mingledorff (tenor sax), Dominick Grillo (baritone sax), Travis Blotzky (tenor sax), Scott Frock (trumpet), and Jason Jurzak (tuba). This six song collection wil transport you to the New Orleans of your dreams-the one where summer thunder, drums, beating hearts and pianos are interchangeable
