Default Re: JOHN RILEY DVD: samples here....

Well I have had this DVD for a fortnight and have to say it's probably one of the best DVD's a jazz drummer could buy. Though anyone could benefit from it. Really well thought out.

What is so good about this DVD is that it's one of the only jazz drum educational dvds out there.

There is so much stuff to work on, and I really like the section on Creativity by using some of the classic solo phrases used by the great masters. I'm also so sure that the exercise on Latin Rhythms- that the first groove is off Sonny Rollins' "St Thomas", a great Max Roach calypso groove. Though I could be wrong. I will be learning that.

Highly recommended!
