If you want to learn brush technique from the master this video is an amazing learning resource as well as a way to peer into the mind of the one drummer who was cited by both Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa as the best in the world on brushes.

This is more than just a DVD - it comes with a booklet that further describes the techniques shown on the video (a transcribed play-along), and has some excellent music as well with accompaniment by Ron Carter on bass and Tony Purrone on guitar.

You can take this instructional video a step further by listening to Thigpen's performances on any Oscar Peterson Trio recording from 1958 through 1965. You'll learn all you need to know about brushwork from this DVD plus listening to Thigpen's recorded work.
