Default Re: Good jazz books

Had a bit of an epiphany. My drum teacher said that instead of thinking about playing the spang-a-lang all the time, that I should think in quarter notes instead, and everything in between is just filler. So I've just sat down and played swung quarter notes on the ride and 2 and 4 on the hi-hat while comping on the snare. It sounds so much better! I can't believe I didn't do this before.
