    When did jazz drumming become 32nd note linear funk?

    Oh I noticed that and I’m always bothered by it. I also noticed that a lot of drummers aren’t able to keep it simple and swinging but instead play way to hard and loud. OT: I want to dive deeper into jazz drumming but it’s a style I don’t know that much grooves, so I’d consider myself as a...
