""Box Who In?" is a vision into the future of New Orleans music. The tracks are representative of what''s here and now, with an insight into the man behind the horn. "The title of the CD is how I feel," says Allen and "I will not be put into the box of a particular style of music. Maybe one day I will want to do a country record and I don''t want to feel limited in any situation."

Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs break out of the box and blend rock, hip-hop, jazz, funk, and even some Latin rhythms together, producing an incredible musical collection entitled Box Who In? Allen begins with what sounds like screaming guitars licks, but it’s an effected trumpet and a memorable melody on “Bad Habit,” which infuses the classic pattern of New Orleans rock and brass sound throughout. Allen does his own thing on “Crazy (‘bout New Orleans)” blending together an infusion of modern jazz resembling “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley. Last year at Jazz Fest, Allen did this song and had the crowd in an uproar; this version seems to be the same style and just as compelling for those of us that believe the same. He does a little scat and even some rap, showing his musical diversity and realm to jump straight into several genres without missing a beat. Allen also brings in some big name friends on Box Who In? with “A Night in Tunisia” featuring Soul Rebels, “Rock Da Mic” featuring local New Orleans drummer Stanton Moore, “Spread My Wings” featuring Yolonda Windsay, and Party All Night” featuring Left Side Brass Band. Allen’s style seems daring and willing to take chances as a young musician, which is so refreshing since he pushes that creative freedom of self-expression to another level. That self-expression can be heard in the lyrics of “The World Is A Ghetto” and “America” that heavily hits the rap beats and provokes true thought that most will agree with. Overall, Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs have produced an incredible thought and theory provoking collection by blending the best sounds together infused with local flavor, which will most likely land Box Who In? as one of the top selling local CDs this summer.
