Re: Greg Hutchinson

Hutchison is a master drummer, not my favorite though. That Young Lion thing is a little tiring to me now. No doubt a great musician though- the guy can play and swing in a league few are in.

Re: How do you know when you have good timing?

The answer to this question is very simple. If you don't know you have good time, you don't have good time.
Good luck to all of us trying to get it.

Re: The Rudimental Ritual Brush Variation?

Hey man,
Actually, I did the ritual for a month and a half with brushes. It's a great idea. However, I quit it because I'm doing some pipe band type snare exercises for technique stuff.
Of course,...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I don't know much about Chicago, but you should definetly check out Smoke and that jam session with Joel Frahm, he's an absolute beast. Smalls and Fat Cat are my two other favorites, and I'd say...

Re: Buddy Rich and sheet music...

Well, I mean, I didn't really get much out of it. I'm sure someone could get a lot of stuff out of it too, just like any book. I mean, with books, technical exercises don't really give you much to...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Okay, like it's already been said, Boston's scene isn't what New York's is. Boston's scene is still great though, especially in comparison to the smaller markets. In the last fifteen years or so,...

Re: Buddy Rich and sheet music...

He couldn't read at all. As an interesting side note, Philly Joe Jones used to read the charts with his band and Buddy would sit there and memorise the entire chart. He was only one of the drummers...

Tom-
Good story, man. Those are great musicians to adjudicate a festival in Fort Mac... which is way the hell up there. I thought there was only oil and rednecks up there...

I'm headed down to NYC this weekend to catch Rosenwinkle at the Village Vanguard with Jeff on drums. Kurt's great- I am not his biggest fan in the world, but I'm really looking forward to hearing...

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

Don't worry, you'll get it. Pay lots of attention to that left hand, and if it's really bothering you, slow it down. The idea is that you are supposed to practice each page five to seven times, so it...

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

JazzSnob- Glad you liked it, sounds like you got it figured out man.
Mike- 80 at regular time, 40 at double time. It works out to 20.... which is the way George wanted you to play it. I usually...

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

Hey gang, just checking in for a post- this thread's right up my alley right now.
At school, I'm studying with the best cat in town for technique- a guy name of Dave Laing who's got chops coming out...

In respect to Herlin Riley-
I had a chance to attend a summer camp that he was playing at last year, and I have to say- as old school as he may sound, there's something cool going on with the guy....

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I love collecting cymbals though, I hope that doesn't put me in that category, because frankly I'd never have gotten deep into this as I did if it wasn't the best thing in the world...

Re: My thinking about Jazz language...please read!

Karl,
I think Jazz "language" in this context means the actual vocabulary that the jazz greats are playing. Any style has it's "cliches" or common vocabulary that it's musicians are expected to...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

PE sticks are fantastic. I use them for everything. When one tip wears down, I just rotate the stick a little bit, voila.

Short answer, Finn, is... yes. I think, anyways. I was recently watching a series of Leonard Bernstein lectures and he spoke of a coming wave of neo-eclecticism in art music coming- this was in the...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Getting eaten alive and completely destroyed can be a great way to learn. When I'm in New York/Bahstin in February, I'll try and look him up. Should be fun.

Hmm, then I'm guessing you've probably checked out Hank Mobley, Sonny Rollins et al?

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I've seen Weckl four times now (once in clinic) and I really didn't dig it at all any time. I did enjoy seeing him with Chick though, because Chick is such a virtuoso. Even if he's playing...
