Steve Fidyk is an amazing big band drummer, Temple University faculty, and author of Mel Bay's Inside the Big Band Drum Chart book/CD/DVD. You can watch concert footage of him here:where the youngest big band drummers ? can you advice me to hear some of new generation or Ed Shaunessy was last of them?
Yeah, I can highly recommend Gordon Goodwin`s Big Phat Band CDs. I`ve just got their latest album "Act Your Age" and love it. Great music and awesome drumming from Bernie!Bernie Dressel can be found on Gordon Goodwin's big band recordings.
