New Orleans Grooves
by Jason Mingledorff
My previous masterclass (New Orleans Grooves, Part 1) in the JulyAugust 2011 issue of Saxophone Journal, focused on the concept of the second line, a unique street groove that combines a clave-like syncopation with a slight swing feel. Please refer to New Orleans Grooves, Part 1 (JulyAugust 2011 issue of Saxophone Journal) for a history of the second line and a number of different ways that it can be presented.
For this masterclass, I’ve written four more songs that represent styles that are also important to local music lovers. These songs, which also show the influence of the second line, feature grooves that were popularized here from the late 1940s to the late 1960s. These include the New Orleans mambo of Professor Longhair, the rock ‘n roll and rhythm and blues of artists like Fats Domino and Huey “Piano” Smith, and the syncopated funk of the Meters.
