Stanton Moore presents a study in New Orleans Street Beats and second-line rhythms that takes the glorious cosmopolitan sounds of the Louisiana style and applies them to funk and rock drumming.

You will learn about the history of street beats, second line and the Mardi Gras Indians as well as the importance of clave to New Orleans drumming. You will discover how to put a New Orleans spin on traditional rhythms like Mambo, Guaguanco, Shuffle and Samba, and how to add inflection and variations to bring them to life. The accompanying CD includes performances by The Dirty Dozen, George Porter and Ivan Neville.

The ideal choice for drummers of all abilities and styles wishing to add some unusual but thoroughly infectious elements to their playing.

          This is a delight because it is CLEAR. So many nuanced based styles are either poorly notated or suffer from a poverty of audio examples. This Book & CD package is neither. It is clearly laid out, plenty of notated grooves are given and audio examples with transcriptions are clear, musical and to the point. In short a very practical introduction and aid to learning New Orleans/ Second Line Street Beat type feels. The clear differentiation between older and newer styles is also a very helpful and practical inclusion, also reinforced by good quality examples with band accompaniments PS you will need a fair grasp of rudiments and basic swing style coordination to play the examples straight off...but they are not so difficult that it can't be worked through solfegio style, example by example page by page.
