New Orleans brass band The Soul Rebels
are adding to the fun of their current fall tour by rolling out a freely-downloadable “Song Of The Week” each Wednesday until the run is finished in December. We’re excited to take part in the program by sharing this week’s Song Of The Week -a brassy cover of Michael Jackson’s “Off The Wall” that was recorded live on tour in California earlier this year.
The Soul Rebels’ instrumental take on “Off The Wall” has been a show-stopper in concert as who doesn’t love to dance to MJ? Edward Lee lays down the song’s signature bass line on tuba as the rest of the horns go to work on its melody, making for a slamming cover of Michael Jackson’s 1979 smash.
Take a listen to The Soul Rebels’ interpretation of “Off The Wall”:
