Get Lucky: Brass Band Remix

The Soul Rebels are a New Orlean's style brass band, who do covers of pop, rock, and EDM tunes. Their remix of Get Lucky by Daft Punk is a great interpretation of the EDM song, where they blend some of the basic melodies and rhythmic lines from the original with additional harmonies, chord progressions, and some improv in the middle.

Like in a few brass bands I've discovered, they add saxophone to the classic instrumentation of trumpet, trombone, tuba, and drum set. A neat addition to the mix that has a nice contrast in timbre and the ability to play some more technically demanding passages.
