Love Colin Bailey, listening to his stuff. He worked with Vince Guaraldi on some Charlie Brown recordings and also Cast Your Fate to The Wind.

His book, "Bass Drum Control" is one of my regular practice books, it keeps the bass drum foot in shape, no nonense-easy to follow exercises that really make a difference you can notice almost right away.

Bass drum control is the stick control of the feet (bailey in fact adapted many of stick control’s progressions for his book). The control exercises on the first two pages are worth the price of admission alone
