Default Re: Jazz education

Ben, ya gotta have your subgenres sorted out - 70s proto-jazz, jazzcore, death jazz, black jazz, gothic jazz, speed jazz, thrash jazz etc :)

Seriously, as dmacc says, getting a handle on the chronology is a good idea. A good way to do this is follow the timeline of great jazz drummers and this might be a useful starting point:
