I am trying to find more songs with this rhythm and arrangement style.

Can you help me figure out what songs/genres have used similar licks and brass arrangement used in the intro and throughout the song?

  • It's definitely a familiar sound --it reminds me of this. The beat is boogie-woogie and the instrumentation is New Orleans. It has a bit of a rockabilly feel, but I'm sure there's a better descriptor than that. – Chris Sunami Feb 12 at 17:56
  • Thank you for your comment. But could you be more specific and mention the reasoning behind your thoughts? For instance, I looked up boogie-woogie songs, and I didn't see any similarity between the rhythm of this song and boogie-woogie rhythm. And what do you mean by a bit of a rockability feel? – user10331890 Feb 15 at 11:08
  • Boogie-woogie is a shuffle rhythm (where the eight note beats are not equal length, but in pairs of long-short, long-short) typically accompanied with a distinctive blues scale baseline. You can hear a sped-up boogie-woogie riff at the very beginning of your song, compare to this: youtube.com/watch?v=8ojwJMalbKs. "Rockabilly" is a boogie-woogie influenced classic country-rock subgenre ("Rock" + "Hillbilly") – Chris Sunami Feb 15 at 14:39
