Ken Field
Saxophonist/composer Ken Field describes the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble as a “funk and street beat brass band playing New Orleans and other modern improvised celebratory styles." Playing original compositions and those of artists as diverse as Billy Idol and Ornette Coleman, the RSE was formed in 1990 to entertain a at a pagan women's ritual celebration. The project continued and today RSE is a fixture on the Boston, New York and New Orleans musical scenes. RSE's two discs-- Year of the Snake (Innova, 2003) and Forked Tongue (Cuneiform, 2008)--have each received great reviews.

AAJ contributor Tod Smith spoke with Field about the history of the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, it's remarkable acceptance by the Crescent City, and its part in maintaining that city's musical legacy.
