Studio and Big Band Drumming

Comments:

The book teaches you how to set up brass figures, and play along with ensemble ques. The CD interprets the written figures. There is a lot to learn here, and much to study and play for someone who wants to be able to swing.

Good Book

Comments:

Great book for learning how to read and interpret different chart figures during performance such as section figures or ensemble passages. It teaches some stylistic elements as well. Lots of info on how to set up ensemble figures and what the best sounds are to support section figures depending on the instruments playing. Definitely get this book. Very helpful for college jazz bands.
