I guess it's the evolution of all drummers to want to learn all styles of music. Jazz has always been one of those styles that drummers often struggle and often there is the suggestion to "listen to a bunch of great jazz". Sounds simple enough but really I found not so fast-jazz is a huge menu of music and some of it I just didn't get it initially-I'm like damn I must be an idiot cause I'm missing something. I watched this video and it really made some great points, I thought, that it's a maturation process and be patient in your musical journey. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8t3r8eey2M0 I remember as a young scientist I would read Scientific American because they are written for laypersons-getting a Science magazine was so technical and heavy jargon it was above my level of comprehension at the time (though admittedly 35 years of being an AAAS member there are some articles still above my comprehension level lol). I've been working my way backwards much as he described-though I jump around and mix it up to see if my ear is getting it yet.
