A Modern Approach to New Orleans Drumming
A Modern Approach to New Orleans Drumming featuring Stanton Moore will establish the foundation of grooves for the 21st
Century. In this second of two DVDs Stanton demonstrates how to blend contemporary ideas such as simple sticking, linear drumming
and the combination of other styles with the traditional Second Line to create a new approach to New Orleans drumming. He shares
his ideas on how to bring character to a groove by paying attention to details and adding inflection while staying true to the
underlying rhythmic structure. Also included is Stantonís personal approach to incorporating Mambo, Guaguanco, Shuffle, Boogaloo
Bossa-nova and Samba with Second Line drumming to add a modern and progressive flair to his playing.

Quintet for Winds No. 2
Written in 1986 for the Manhattan Wind Quintet, this dynamic piece in three movements encompasses several moods that range from
aggressiveness to placidity and etherealness. A technically demanding piece, the first movement is filled with exciting short
phrases that come together in a fugual section. The second movement is both peaceful and emotional, with a profound sense of
mystery. Finally, the third movement, a chaconne, features a continuous set of variations over a brief repeated harmonic
pattern. The movement ends with a chorale-like coda that summarizes the entire piece.
