"Big" Sam Williams is a trombonist — as I have mentioned in this column before, the eternal child in me prefers the term tromboner — who was a key player for many years in the legendary New Orleans group the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, as well as an ace session man tapped by superstars like Dave Matthews and Elvis Costello. For the last 15 years, however, he has toured with his superlative act Big Sam's Funky Nation, staffed by a crack team of NOLA heavies dedicated to the big horn funk gospel that makes that city an eternal beacon of greatness. You can gain access to that greatness at Humbrews tonight at 9:30 p.m. ($10). If you really want to dance your ass off like the lighthearted, mad and happy fool I used to be when I lived around the corner from Tipitina's on Tchoupitoulas Street, don't miss this one.
