Re: Jazz Drums

I think that's a good point that I hadn't thought of either- the agression part of it. For me, When I decided to really get into Jazz as a kid, for Miles' stuff, I ended up buying KOB, Milestones,...

Re: Jazz Drums

Wrong.
While bebop IS eventually essential listening, there is no better start than KOB. For all the reasons Todd said (though he is wrong about Weckl) and that it is easily accessable and...

Re: EXP'D JAZZ DRUMMERS PLEASE HELP!!! Jazz Pre-Audition Feedback...

There has been a lot of good avdice so far, but I'll add my 2 pence anyway.

I don't think you have to switch sticks at all, however, if you want to, bigger, maple sticks are the best option, like...

Re: Philly Joe Jones

The 'Philly Lick' is actually just a cross stick on beat 4 in the second measure of a 2 measure phrase during comping. Listen to how much Cobb used that when he replaced PJJ, he was the first one to...

Rick, good to see hear from you again, drop me a line man! I was almost going to be touring Germany in August but if fell through, dammit! And thanks for the post, I think that too sometimes.=)

Re: Comping: A systematic approach to accompaniment

You can say that I am, but I'm, not.

I suppose you could say that 'smoke signals' is a bit TOO far old fashioned, but the point still remains. To constantly play it IS old hat. Playing...

Re: Comping: A systematic approach to accompaniment

No one, me included, is disputing Art Blakey's RELEVANCE. I am also not disputing the relevance of the longship, just that it's not really modern and would stand out in a nautical outing, much like...

Re: Comping: A systematic approach to accompaniment

What that in 2010 that kind of playing could be heard as old fashioned? What's so hard about that?

Re: Comping: A systematic approach to accompaniment

I think it's not quite as cut and dried as that, at least to me. I wouldn't say 'be busy' for a few tunes, then 'not be busy' for the next few, I say let the music and the ensemble dictate how...

Re: The European and American approach

I think you make agood point about race, Ken, there seems TO ME, to be much less of that in the European approach, there's no 'arguing of who's music it is' and so forth, you know? I wouldn't argue...

Re: The European and American approach

Just to be clear, I'm not saying that there are NO forward thinking Americans, there are many of course. But yes, there is a general prevailing attitude (idea? stigma? Dunno what else to call it), if...

Re: The European and American approach

I certainly think that mainland Europeans are far more forward thinking and open than North Americans (in general), however that has nothing to do with how hard they swing, as it were. It's the...

Re: Comping: A systematic approach to accompaniment

Very very old hat. Great for the time, but how many years ago was that? It's more like using smoke signals than a phone booth, if you ask me. Does that make it wrong? To some, yes but if you're...

Re: The European and American approach

There have always been 2 kinds of European thought related to Jazz, the one that wants to BE American, very influenced by NYC, the scene, the sound, etc. looking to America as the benchmark and end...

Re: Street drummer in Toronto

This guy has been doing this for as long as I can remember. I remember once I went on a school trip to a Blue Jays game in grade 8 or so and he was outside Exhibition Stadium. I was just a beginning...

Re: Jazz drummers - having to lose the beat?

No, musicians evolved, so did the music, though not Wynton's music of course. Furthermore, he's wrong. People play both of things still, his statements are out of date (whenever they were made) and...

Re: Clive Vs Nicko

You could say for Maiden that it's like Paul and Bruce. They each had their different stuff that was integral to that music and just as Bruce sounds different singing 'Murders in the Rue Morgue',...

Re: jazz ride cymbal question

I've been watching this thread for a couple days and finally felt I needed to say something.

Brit is right, don't accent one in the cymbal beat. Ever. Whoever said that to you Flex was wrong. ...

Re: Jazz drumkit

I think this is something not enough people take into consideration- the blend of their gear. Acoustically the smaller, higher pitched drums (which always sound lower within a group/on a recording...

Re: How do you define a "drummer's drummer"?

Oh, I think they exist (I never said otherwise), I just don't usually want to listen to them. I clearly defined it, GD. Are you certain about that last bit though? Is there NO ONE you think just...

Re: How do you define a "drummer's drummer"?

There's no contradiction if you realise that I AM in fact saying 'who cares' about so called 'drummer's drummers'.

See, I don't think a drummer should be 'an anything'. They should just play...

Re: How do you define a "drummer's drummer"?

If that's the case, what exactly would be the point to that? Wouldn't that be like writing a book that only you and your mates get, while the rest of the world goes 'who cares?'
