Default Books dealing with odd time sigs

Hey guys, just curious if anyone knows about any good books (or any other resource) available covering the subject of odd time signatures. I did a search and found:

- Even in the Odds
- 5/4 chapters in Riley's Jazz Drummer's Workshop
- Bellson's book
- Good ol' Syncopation
- Hare's 5/4 warmup
- Odd time posts in Todd's blog
- Two books in Amazon: Drummer's Guide to Odd Meters & Drummer's Guide to Odd Time Signatures

Feel free to share anything else you know about.

4 way coordination is the best book for odd timings and polyrhythms

Listen to Planet X, Oceansize, Karnivool, King Crimson, Animals as leaders, Tool, Extol and porcupine tree.

Meshuggah and periphery do alot of cool recurring rhythms too.

Ralph Humphrey's book is pretty much the standard, even in learning institutions.

Thanks for mentioning my stuff-- Even In The Odds is pretty much the book as far as I'm concerned-- I think it works best if you have a pretty solid grasp on funk and jazz in 4/4 and 3/4. There's also a bunch of 5/4 stuff in the various Dahlgren & Fine books. Joel Rothman's 3, 5, 7, 9, Jazz! is good. And John Riley has a good summary of the basic approach for learning odd meters in his Jazz Drummer's Workshop. And also Charles Dowd's Thesaurus for the Jazz/Rock Drummer (re-titled A Funky Thesaurus) has a lot of odd meter stuff similar to A Funky Primer. There are a few other titles I haven't messed with for sale at Steve Weiss-- a book by Joe Porcaro might be worth investigating.
