The press is talking about Ken Field's solo release "Transmitter" (2021) on Neuma Records:
Revolutionary Snake Ensemble's latest CD "I Want That Sound!" is out now on Innova Recordings. "Hard-partying avant-funk, with boisterous soloing...I Want That Sound! is a strong example of how Ken Field and the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble continue to push the brass band tradition forward in an entirely original way, all the while making music that's a heck of a lot of fun." - NYC Jazz Record
The Revolutionary Snake Ensemble's third CD Live Snakes (Accurate Records) was an Editor's Pick in Downbeat, and Offbeat Magazine (New Orleans) called it "A stone cold killer diller!"
