The Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra released their album Get It How You Live on July 13th. If you are not familiar with them, they are a 19-piece Big Band ensemble. This is not your grandfather’s Big Band. The Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra is a unit that oozes Funk, Jazz, Hip-Hop and R&B. Singer Dionne Farris handles the vocals on the album.
By the way, they do a remake of her hit Hopeless. You can check it out below.
There is also an instrumental take on the Shai classic If I Ever Fall In Love AND a three part Switch Medley.
Do I have your attention now?
The band is the brainchild of trumpeter Russell Gunn, and I believe they may have hit it out of the park with this one.
