Default Re: Mark Walker

Mark also played with Michel Camilo, following in the footsteps of guys like Joel Rosenblatt and Dave Weckl. I consider Mark to be a highly underrated drummer. He is not a household name (not yet anyway), but if you see him play live, you immediately know that you are seeing and hearing one of the world's greatest drummers.

Default Rhythm of the Americas - Streaming Live Monday October 1st 8:15pm

Rhythm of the Americas LIVE STREAMING MONDAY OCT. 1st 8pm

Grammy Award–winning drummer, composer, and Berklee professor Mark Walker presents a powerful and intoxicating blend of jazz improvisation with the rhythms and percussion of South America, the Caribbean, and North America. His new ensemble, the Rhythm of the Americas, is a virtual wall of rhythm, sound, and color, and features two percussionists, Hammond organ, piano, guitar, saxophone, bass, and drums. Walker formed this group to balance the two sides of music he’s been involved in for over two decades: the tradition and folklore of his work with Paquito D’Rivera, Caribbean Jazz Project, Andy Narell, Cesar Camargo Mariano and Michel Camilo, and the expansive world jazz styles of Lyle Mays, Oregon, and Ralph Towner. At the core of the group are two masters of percussion from Berklee: assistant professor Ernesto Diaz (from Colombia) and Berklee alumnus Marcus Santos (from Brazil). Together these three percussion virtuosos drive the ensemble with passion, groove, and fire. The trio itself has been featured in concert at PASIC, the international percussion convention. The group also features Berklee faculty members Alain Mallet (piano), Tim Miller (guitar), Aubrey Johnson (vocals), Dave Limina (Hammond organ), and Dan Ian Smith (woodwinds), and Berklee alumnus Andres Rotmistrovsky (electric bass). These masters of improvisation and leaders in their own right provide all the elements of an exciting and rewarding musical experience for all listeners.

Default Mark Walker "Chord Bible Belt" featuring LYLE MAYS

Chord Bible Belt Video


Drummer Mark Walker interprets an improvised piece by pianist/keyboardist/composer Lyle Mays.

The two-finger keyboard improvisation utilizes a new app currently being developed by Mays, which harmonizes from the top down, choosing voicings from a user-created data base, which in this case contained less than a dozen chords. Once a key is held down, the app ignores other key presses, so counterlines can be added without triggering chord-on-chord cacophony. The user also sets the Midi trigger range. Midi notes above or below that range are ignored.

This is not "smart" software. It doesn't attempt to compose. The key to using it is twofold. First design a cool data base of chord voicings, then practice with it, like any instrument, to learn what that data base can and can't do.

Walker recorded this first take at 8:45 am on October 12, 2012 at Coolidge Hill Studio in Natick, MA. For more information including scores and keyboard transcriptions, log on to www.markwalkerdrums.comChord Bible Belt

Default What Sould I Practice?

My drum set students often ask me what they should practice. Because we’re all unique, with different levels of skill and experience, there’s no easy answer. Sometimes we don’t realize what we need to practice, or that we need it at all. Eventually, reality will hit us, say, when we lose control of the time, the volume, or the tempo – or perhaps when we’re just feeling like we need an upgrade.

Default Staying Motivated

Have you ever fallen into a rut? There are times where we just don’t feel motivated. Sometimes we get sick, tired, bored, stressed out, or just need something to refresh ourselves. What we really need is to catch that creative spark that made us want to make music in the first place. We all have it inside us, whether or not it has to do with music.

When you wear earplugs or isolation headphones, you no longer can tell exactly how loud or soft you’re playing. Take them out occasionally and do a reality check. It could make a big difference in the music.

Drummers' Tip #16:

Whether you have the most expensive high-end kit or an entry-level drum set, what’s important is how you tune and where you strike. Whatever you have, treat it with respect. Change the heads when you can, clean it, store it properly, and it will last.

True Story: I had been playing at the Blue Note in NYC since 1989, and sometime around 2001, I noticed that their Yamaha kit (given to them by Yamaha) was in very bad condition from being stored and treated improperly. Hardware was being put on top of drums, which were put on top of hardware...it was a mess. I told the artist relations person at Yamaha what was going on, and I didn't hear about it after that. Some time went by, and I walked into the Blue Note for a gig...and there was a brand new Yamaha kit! The Blue Note had built a new secure storage system for the drums, and the sound engineer warned me to be careful with the drums. I was floored! I asked the sound engineer if Yamaha had given them the new kit, to which he replied "No, they took the old one back..We had to buy the new one.."
Fast forward to 2013: I played the Blue Note in August, and didn't recognize the kit..It was the same "brand new kit" they had bought!

Default Baiao Demo

Baiao Demo (Mark plays all parts on quad split screen.)

ZABUMBA, TRIÁNGULO,
PANDEIRO, AGOGÔ SINTÉTICA

Video HERE.


The baião is a Northeast Brazilian rhythmic formula that became the basis of a wide range of music. Forró and coco (or embolada) are clear examples. The main baião instrument is the zabumba, a flat, double-headed bass drum played with a mallet in one hand and stick in the other, each striking the opposite head of the drum.

Enjoy!

My son has a jazz concert at that exact time, so I can't go. But there should be an archive recording of it coming out.
