The Evolution of Jazz Drumming is a guide and workbook designed by
author Danny Gottlieb to be studied based on a typical 16-week college
semester. A legendary and influential jazz drummer is studied during
each of these weeks.
The book includes a DVD of classic video clips of many of the
drummers, as well as an MP3 disc with over 300 tracks. Video clips on
the DVD are analyzed and transcribed in the text, while the MP3s consist
of exercises and études from the book recorded at various speeds that
can be looped for analysis and practice.
“This package is the perfect addition to any college jazz curriculum,
as well as required study for any serious student of jazz drumming.”
says Hudson Music Senior Drum Editor Joe Bergamini. “From the videos on
the DVD, to the transcriptions, biographies, and rare photos, this
package is a treasure for anyone with any interest in jazz drumming.”
