Default DVD For Learning Jazz Drumming (Suggestions)?

I have "The Master Drummer" (J Riley) on DVD, and while it is a great DVD, I find myself looking to see if I can find at least one more good DVD which aims to teach Jazz drumming "fundamentals" (ex:. - common rhythm patterns, stickings, grooves, etc.).

Any suggestions?

The best book out there to give you a great grounding is John Rileys book ' The art of Bop'

Covers everything from comping phrases (jazz equivalent of grooves) solo phrases, brushes, uptempo playing. Has a great suggested listening guide and its packed with loads of advice.

Best $18.63 you will spend on it.

Thanks Dave; however, as indicated in the title and decription, I am looking for some suggestions with regards to the DVD format (as opposed to the printed medium).

Cheers

I know but john rileys dvd is the best and you already have that.

His book however is the best dvd/book available.

If you dont already have a good grasp of jazz any dvd (i have most of them) out there isnt anywhere as good or beneficial to your playing as this book.

Try Ralph Peterson's DVD. Here is a link and an excerpt.

I seriously don't know if you can do any better DVD - wise than Riley's The Master Drummer. I guess you could get his books if you don't already have them. And just listen to A LOT of jazz. Better than books and DVDs.

I'm not a jazz drummer but I have the John Riley dvd too and it is really cool.

Antonio Sanchez' dvd is also worthwhile.

I have quite a few jazz DVDs:

- John Riley's Master Drummer

- Peter Erskine's "Everything I Know..." and the old Timekeeping ones.

- Ed Thigpen's Essence of Brushes

- Clayton Cameron's Brushworks

- Steve Smith's Standing on the Shoulders of Giants and Drumset Technique

- Steve Smith/Adam Nussbaum's Art of Playing Brushes

and probably a few more that I can't think of right now.

John Riley's Master Drummer is by far the best one of all of them.
