Had always admired jazz drummers though and bought myself a Buddy Rich rudiments book many moons ago.
The set was fairly straightforward. Mainly brush work, standards, Herbie Hancock and some Sinatra. We used to do "Gotcha" (Starsky & Hutch Theme) and a few more up beat numbers which I really enjoyed.
It was 6 months work and I really learned a lot about dynamics. Certainly more than I had learned over the 10 years leading up to that point!
