Fred Wesley is an American jazz and funk trombonist, best known for his work with James Brown in the 60s and 70s, as well as his work with Parliament-Funkadelic in the second half of the 70s.
Wesley became a force in jazz in 1978 when he joined the Count Basie Orchestra. In 2015 Wesley was inducted into the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame.
Wuda Cuda Shuda was made during Fred Wesley's 2002 European Tour. The band played in Alencon, Le Havre, Nancy, St Germain, Massy, Zurich, Peer, Marcq en Baroeul, Brainans, St Nazaire, London, Leeds & Chaumont.
The LP is called Wuda Cuda Shuda because of all the excuses that were made up for not doing it sooner. ''We Wuda done it last year or we Cuda done it when we were in New York or we Shuda done it with the guy from this label or that label and such weak ass procrastination's like that'' - Fred Wesley.
This LP, as it is with the Fred Wesley Band, is an eclectic collection of rhythms.
