New Orleans Grooves
Masterclass/Play-Along CD
by Jason Mingledorff

This Saxophone Journal Masterclass with accompanying CD is an introduction to some of the prevalent grooves that continue to be popular in New Orleans today. For this first of two parts, I’ve written four songs that showcase variations of the rhythm that we in New Orleans call the “second line.” A future article will discuss other important Crescent City styles, including New Orleans mambo, rock-and-roll, and funk.
