The kind of style featured in "Treme" and elsewhere. I mean when there are lots of horns playing melodies on top of one another. Is there a name for this style? "Second Line"? Is there a scale/mode associated with this type of playing?
"When the Saints go Marchin' in" often has this style to some extent, but also the music played at funerals.
I know this is more brass-dominant, but I really dig it, and would like to play along at home on my sax...
