Second Movement

A BOPPING DANCEFLOOR is the mission of New York City’s Second Movement ( 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.
