I took several one-on-one lessons with Mike at the Drummer's Collective in NYC back in the mid 1980's. Still have all the material he provided me.

Looking forward to checking this out.

Thanks for posting this!

I took a look at the book excerpt, and I like the jazz ride patterns in chapter 1. I don't know why, but I think this is the first book that actually puts two bars together to lay out some of the most common jazz ride patterns out there today.

But the pattern #13 on pg21 I'm not sure I understand the value of. It looks like a shuffle pattern with the hihat foot, using the LH on snare to fill linearly, while maintaining the jazz ride pattern on the ride cymbal. I admit I haven't yet tried it, so I don't know for sure the difficulty. But my shin hurts thinking about it. LOL
