The Sound of Jazz Drumming
– creativity and development in melodic phrasing
The aim of The Sound of Jazz Drumming is to encourage and inspire other drummers to dig deeper into what they are playing or exploring at any moment during their practice sessions. Learn about melodic phrasing, quintuplets in swing, soloing, playing straight 8th notes with motivating coordination exercises, and much more.
The book provides one hundred examples, based on 10 Jazz standards on how to be creative with melodic phrases – e.g. based on the two-bar opening phrase of “I’ll Be Seeing You” by Sammy Fain.
The book also includes dedicated technical exercises to develop your single and double strokes.
