Re: jazz drumming/traditional grip/rudiments

Look at the great jazz drummers. They use both grips without thinking about which one to use for this or that.
Of course certain things are easier with a certain grip and some drummers have their...

Re: Key to getting to the next drumming level?

One hour a day is not enough. Many musicians work 4 hours a day on their instrument. As you say you have other commitments, two hours a day would be more interesting. You could split them into, say...

Re: Real Books

Re: Jazz music/drummer recommendations

I very humbly designed a few pages about famous jazz drummers. Although it is in French (some in English too) you'll be able to see which records to listen to. Just click on the pocket sleeves to...

Re: Tightness / Microtiming

Subdividing and counting are important because it enables to spot not only where you are but also where exactly tightness is lacking (several ways of counting of course).

Re: Help! Master Studies Accented Triplets

Use a metronome and set it to a quarter note pulse so that you can hear (and feel) the quarter note pulse.

Just play quarter notes first : R - L - R - L (one two three four)

Then play 8th...

Re: Ballads and Latin ideas: Jazz Gig Help!

Same but with the mambo ride pattern which Elvin used:

Re: Jazz drummers to get me started?

Why not? Indeed it is quite possible, but I still don't think it is the best choice when STARTING jazz. That's what I did and still do. As you said you were also taken on a complete tour of what and...

Re: How do you use your metronome?

Yes, if the tempo is crotchet = 160bpm and you want the click on half notes you have to set your metronome on minim = 80 bpm.
If crotchet = 400 , the set your metronome (minim = 200) to play half...

Re: dead time on stage?

So do I for the obvious reasons you stated.

I detest it even more if the band plays good music because then it is a case of disrespect towards the audience.

Re: Good idea or bad idea?

Definitely Brazillian! The bass surdo looks like a floor tom but it hasn't got any legs. It is carried by the player, attached to the waist. Bass surdos are played with two mallets, or one mallet,...

Re: Jazz Drummers! Lead Your Own Band! Free Original Jazz Music!

Well, I have, and I can only kind of disagree with you here, sorry.

Monk is unique of course but his music...

Actually very few jazz drummers use another grip but something similar to the French grip to spang a lang on the ride cymbal. Just go figure out at concerts or watch videos. The reason why is because...
