Woah! Great having you here Roger Biwandu. Your drumming is always excellent! Nice to see another Rugby fan too!

Hey Mike,

Thanks for your messge Man.

You know, I never played with MC Solaar, I mean yes I did, but it's because he was invited by a band with who I was playing, so he was just singing 16 bars by night with us during 3 night at L'Olympia in Paris, it was fun and he a nice Guy.

Thanks again for your kind words about my drumming, take care Mike.

Roger.
PS : by the way nice kit, I prefer Quick Beat than K hi-hat though... :-)

So 1 hours everyday, it's really short, just the time to warm up, but I would say some rudiment (Stick Control) on a pad with a metronome.

On drums I would just play like a crazy during this too short time, but also some stuff with a metronome.

Depends also if I would have some songs to learn...

Bonjour Roger

I just stop by to say "un beau bonjour" au cousin français.

Can you tell me what I should listen that you're the most proud of your playing.

Prends soin de toi et à la prochaine.

PS. Est qu'il t'arrive des fois de faire un arrêt à Montréal ?

Bonjour Mind_Drummer,

Thanks for your message.

I was in Montreal third times in one year, twice in the great Spectrum (I love to play there and I'm very sad that they gonna destroy it...) with Salif Keita, and one time with the GREAT Joe Zawinul for the jazz festival.

I'm ok wit a band named Chic Hot, the name of the album is "Satyagraha", you can hear on song on my website http://www.rogerbiwandu.com

And most important, my album (acoustic jazz) should be release by next september/october, I'm VERY proud of the whole thing as I did write most of the music played.

All right, thanks again for your message.

Merci Roger de ta réponse.

Yeah I agree it's sad about the Montreal Spectrum.

I listened the tune on your web site and there's some great playing right there.

Awesome is the right word.

Looking forward for more...

Thank's for sharing.

Take care A+

Hello Roger.

Thanks.

Hey Rodger, Didnt realize you were here!!! : )

How lucky we are! Anyway, not knowing this, I started a thread on your playing of Palladium, which you might want to check out.

http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=32649

Is that a songo, you are playing?

I will use this opportunity to say that Weather Report was a very stong influence for me, which is how I came about discovering you. I then saw all your clips on the youtube.

Having had the good fortune to spend some time with some of the the 'greats', I have come to feel that there are very good drummers and then there are the special ones.

I think you are one of the special ones.

Look forward to more great music from you, and thanks for being on Drummerworld.

Au revoir..

Hey Roger..
How do you say "Kick Ass" in French?:)
I hope you are well. I was trying to pick up a copy of your album but it seems it is only available on French sites and I can't read a lick.

Please contact me. If you would like we can trade..I will send you one of mine.
All the best

Hey Roger,

Just wanted to let you know that your playing is very inspirational and it's an honor to talk with you.

I was just listening to your song, "Slink," and I couldn't help but notice how crisp your playing is.

Do you have any tips on developing a good sense of time in a swing feel and improving comping skills?

Thanks in advance!

Hey PCJazzDrums,

Thanks for your message and your very kinds words about my drumming.

Well, of course you know that "Slink" has been written by Vinnie Colaiuta, it's a theme very inspiring, and it's always challenging, (and dangerous ?) to use the music of our masters.

I find that my timing is a pure desaster, I try to be as must honest as possible, not playing what I would love, but just playing what I can, and of course for that the key is to play the music without thinking about the drums, then all comes kind of naturaly.

I love to play along with my favorite musicians, Bran and Wynton Marsalis, Wayne Shorter, Miles, etc...
I'm not playing the same thing, maybe I'm just playing the ride cymbal and the hh, then I'm just listening the vibe, what happens, the interaction between the musicians...

For the Jazz music my drumming comes from Jeff "Tain" Watts around 75%, then I must have some Elvin and Tony that I listen a lot too, Vinnie is a huge inspiration, so I supose that his drumming can be hear in my playing too.

Thanks again for your message man, all the best.

Thanks a lot for the reply!

I completely agree with your comment on listening to the masters of our instrument. I've heard Vinnie's rendition of Slink and his playing too is incredible.

I think I'll try what you suggested, playing along with just the Hi-Hat or Ride and trying to listen to other instruments.

I've also heard from Tommy Igoe that it's important not to be selfish when drumming and try to only play things that help the music.

I'll use your tips a lot, so thanks again!

Hi VicFirth5A,

I think it's great to practice on a pad, but it's also true that it's not the same feeling than a drums, you have to do both as much as you can.

I use a lot pad, I have a drum pad on witch I have a lot of fun, but nothing better than a real drums.

As for the right foot I can't help as I'm still looking to buy one, do you know a good shopp for that ? ;-)

Thanks again for your message, I wish you all the best, cheers.

Hi Lex,

Thanks for posting.

A lot of music was played in my family, and my sisters were into The Beatles, The Police and Toto, and we all know the drummers of thoses bands, their drumming was talking to me and I had some facilities with the drums, so all came kind of naturaly and it was clear when I was 11 years old or so that I'd be musician.

Thanks again for your message, cheers.

Roger, you're a badass, man,... Ive been following your career off and on.. Palladium blew me away, a while back.. You've got a killer groove and a very individual style with some unique chops. very much your own... I like that! : )

What was it like to work with Zawinul? Do you agree that he will go down in history as one of the great modern jazz composers?
Who's your favorite bassist to play with? Whats Linley Marthe like to play with? Etienne? The great Michel Alibo in this clip...? Do you know my friend CHander Sardjoe?


CHeers, ABe

Hey Abe,

Thank you very much for the kind message, much appreciated.

Joe was hard to work with, kind of old Be-bop fashion way to work, and he was already a legend back then, no doubt that he's now full part of the music History.

I'm lucky to play most of the time with great bass player like Jérôme Regard, Marcus Miller, Linley, Michel Alibo, Mike Clinton, Henri Dorina, there is so much great musician in France, the list is huge !!!
Still waiting to play with some my hero like Patitucci, Jimmy Johnson, Bob Hurst, Eric Revis, McBride, etc...

Yeah I know Chander, great drummer and nice guy.

Thanks again for your message man, cheers.

Hi!
First of all I am very fascinated by your playing and floored by quality of musicianship!!! I'd like to give you some questions regarding practising... I read some there (few posts ago), but I'd rather know how your ideal practise session looks (looked) like? Also regarding practising - is any advice which you give on focus? Well, I heard quote by Benny Greb, that only 15 minutes of really focusing practising is quite difficult. How would you approach that? Another questions goes to: How you scheduled your practise time? (In blocks, how much time etc.)
and: If you write down notes to practise diary, how does them look like:-)? (quite funny huh?:-))
Thanks in front, for your time to answer a lot of question. Hope to see you soon playing with your band!

Hi Tkie,

Thank you very much for your very kind message and your support, it's good to be appreciated.

Well, I'm not focusing on anything special when I practice, except trying to keep a decent technic, a good tempo and sens of rythm.

I have 2/3 hours 4 days a week, most of the I just play whatever comes in my head, otherwise I set a metronom or some playback and I try to push my rythm sens as far as possible.
Time to time I record my practice session, and rarely I bring a camera, very helpful.

But nothing is better than playing with other musicians so... ;-)

Thanks again for your message, and below a drum solo that I did in february 2011, enjoy.

Yeah my friend, no more Gretsch for me, they don't like me/showing me enough respect here in France so I had to left...

Waiting a little bit for annoucing my new drum company.

Thanks for your interest bro'.
