This is a great track to play! 140 bmp Jazz/latin.Love the Buddy Rich big band version and the Horace Silver - Blue Note Records version, the play along track comes from the Buddy Rich playalong book ( the trumpet solo is amazing).
Im a fan of vintage drums and well made contemporary drums, I love the distinctive sound of my 80s Yamaha 9000 kit and 70s Fibes snare drum.Here is a drum break I recorded a while ago, the drums have no EQ(straight into the desk).
Im currently in rehearsals for a Latin-Jazz album, here is my attempt at soloing over a piano Montuno, I try to play the 2-3 clave rhythm with my left foot (cowbell ).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re8nRlfn7p8

When getting students to appreciate jazz, I start them with this
