Second Movement

A BOPPING DANCEFLOOR is the mission of New York City’s Second Movement (www.secondmovement.com). The band, which began its journey into groove-driven jazz-funk in 2003, has emerged as an energetic and original voice within the field, amazing audiences with the force and precision of its sound. They have headlined festivals and clubs along the East Coast, and have shared the stage with the undisputed Grandfather of the instrumental funk style, Meters’ guitarist Leo Nocentelli.

Second Movement is serious about its music, and its approach is thoroughly old school. Both of the band’s albums - the eponymous debut (2005) and the forthcoming LP - were recorded live in the studio. For the band, the perfect take means everything, and the music exists within the moment. The compositional detail, the rhythmic focus, the burning solos - everything you hear on these recordings take on an even greater intensity in a live setting.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
