ReBirth by Terrance Osborne
Music percolates through the streets of New Orleans and permeates the
soul of those in the City. One extraordinary such soul is Philip
Frazier who formed the ReBirth Brass Band in 1983 while still in high
school. His tuba pumps New Orleans' greatest natural resource for all
it’s worth as it gives the band its foundation. The renewable energy
ReBirth brings to this timeless street music respects the old as it
pursues the new. Frazier's well-worn tuba has propelled ReBirth from
the modest Treme neighborhood to world renown. Its Sousa-funk pulse
proves the heart still beats strong deep in New Orleans. If you’re
looking for assurance that the past has a future, ReBirth is it.
Making the soul of New Orleans manifest on paper takes an artist
steeped in its culture. Native son Terrance Osborne’s intuitive sense
of color, light and form make this poster a luminous modern classic;
an audible visual. The concept was inspired in part by a photograph by
former New Orleans Saint, Brad Edelman. The result is a visual legacy
as vibrant as the music that inspired it.
