Hi all,

Over on the TubaEuph list the subject of a musical style from some  
rural Black churches in the deep south called "Shout Band" came up -  
the form is sort of traditional jazz, call and response, riffs, and  
trombone driven gospel. Not exactly OKOM, but close enough for me!

There is a compilation CD of some of the bands here:

samples can be heard there.

More info here:

and a video from a current band:

Very interesting, joyous music!
