This item is permanently out of print
With The Total Jazz Drummer, you start with basic lessons in grip and rhythm and end up playing solos in the styles of Elvin Jones, Tony Williams, "Philly" Joe Jones, and Max Roach. This book features many of the styles that make the instrument and genre of jazz drumming so challenging yet rewarding---from second line (street beat), bossa nova, samba, clave, mambo, and salsa, to songo, bembe, abakwa, and calypso. All players, from beginning to advanced, will take something away from this wide-ranging study of jazz drums. A practice CD with backing tracks is included.
