Music and brass don’t go together no more, nobody sings with a line of tooters standing in the back on a little raised platform – trombone, trumpet, bugle, saxophone – all dippin and swayin with the forties dance groove. Frocks and tuxedos. Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman … zzzzzzzzzzzz

Chick Corea came out last century and brought a proper brace of brass with him and that was it until now.

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars have put this little tune together, called it Uptown Funk and it is impossible to listen to and not release a little boogie jive.

The piece runs for 4:31

….  we get to see that smoking brass line-up at about 3:30
