Black Bottom Stomp - Technique


The recording has many features that are typical of the New Orleans style:

  • the frontline of trumpet, clarinet and trombone and rhythm section comprising piano, banjo, double bass and drum kit
  • the structure, derived from multi-thematic ragtime structures, with a transitional interlude leading to a new key
  • collective improvisation ensemble sections, the main melody woven together with a counter-melody and the accompaniment
  • the counter-melody relies upon scalar patterns and arpeggios
  • the instrumental performance techniques such as the trombone counter-melody glissandos, sometimes known as "tailgating"
  • the percussive "slapped" bass used to help keep time in the rhythm section.
