 New Orleans Nightcrawlers recordings - Funknicity
Most New Orleans brass bands still follow the traditional style: collective improvisation in which the full voice of the band, all horns wailing at once, carries the weight of the music.
One reason for that is the crowd of second-liners that follows the band in the street, demanding the driving groove that pushes a parade along.
Of course all these elements are free-floating in the contemporary New Orleans brass band tradition, along with sounds of Horace Silver, Bobby Timmons, the Crusaders, the JB Horns, even some hiphop and rap.

 Traditional Jazz - New Orleans
The main features of New Orleans jazz are the unscripted ensemble work, the unwritten but generally acknowledged rhythms that may be used, and the defined roles of the instruments.
"The longer the band has been playing together the closer the harmony in the ensemble work" is a good maxim to judge a New Orleans band by; strings of solos generally indicate that the musicians do not either play together very often or that they do not have much confidence in each other.
Another band that should be featured is Lu Watter's Yerba Buena Jazz Band who were the prime revivalist on the west coast from the '40s onward; they were also instrumental in getting revivalists to go back to the original recorded sources.
