Book Description

April 12 2011

Enormous demands are placed on the control and manual dexterity of the contemporary drum set player, particularly in the Jazz idiom. Today's drummer is expected to have developed limb coordination to a degree that would have been thought unachievable a few short years ago. This text presents an effective method of dealing with the mastery of drum set coordination by breaking it down into four sections: 1) Ride Cymbal - Right hand; 2) Snare Drum - Left hand; 3) Bass Drum - Right foot; 4) Hi-hat - Left foot.

The author clearly states his goals in writing this book: "It is my sincere wish that the materials presented in [this text will be of considerable help in developing musical approach to the coordination skills demanded of today's drummer." -John Pickering

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent jazz coordination cookbook Dec 26 2005
By Giuseppe Bianco - Published on Amazon.com
I recently received this book and I've been working on it for more than a week. It's somehow surprising that this book is not widely known in the drumming community (at least here in Italy).

I find this book excellent. It contains many coordination exercises on 1, 2 and 3 voices (all combinations of snare drum, bass drum and hi-hat), both on swung eighths and triplets, against the jazz ride pattern. The exercises are of gradually increasing difficulty so the book would be perfect both for the beginner or the advanced jazz drummer. The review solos at the end of each chapter are musically pleasant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Sept. 28 2004
By D. Kolton - Published on Amazon.com
An easy to follow progression of fundamentals leading to solos, this is a great book for staring your jazz studies. It does follow the one primary basic ride sound, but by the end I would think one would be able to improvise fairly well around that pattern.
