"One of 1995's most fun and uplifting CDs."

"Masters of Generation X brass band music." 
-Matthew Bowman, Northeast Performer

New Orleans jazz with a '90's edge. Neither Dixieland revivalists nor a brass parade band, MITS combines elements of traditional NOLA polyphony and funk with an awareness of modern jazz styles from bop through avant - and puts it all into a catchy, entertaining package. They cut their teeth playing in the streets and clubs of the US and Europe, and this is their 1995 debut recording. Special guest is Jimmy Mazzy, a legendary figure in New England trad jazz. Freewheeling and fun, Made in the Shade make an old style new again.
