Introduction to Swing-Style Drumming Book/CD Set by Joe Maroni. For Drum Set. Methods. Swing. Beginning. Book/CD Set. 104 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20991BCD). ISBN 9780786605590. Swing. 8.75x11.75 inches. Introduction to Swing Style Drumming is a system specifically designed to enable beginning drum students to develop the ability to play swing style music. The objective is to develop coordinated independence between the ride cymbal - played with the right hand, snare drum - played with the left hand, bass drum - played with the right foot, and hi hat cymbal - played with the left foot. Lessons include 380 rhythm patterns written for snare and bass drum. Four rhythm patterns are written in four measure phrases followed by a sixteen measure summary combining the four patterns. All the rhythm patterns are played independently against the jazz swing beat on the ride cymbal. Every lesson builds on those that came before, giving students a chance to practice what they have learned and reinforcing skills that will be used over and over. Includes audio CD with all the lessons from the book. The objectives of this book are as follows: Develop a solid foundation for playing coordinated independence with hands and feet; Develop a feel and concept for playing swing style music; Develop the ability to keep perfect time which is the drummer's most important function; Develop the ability to feel a four measure phrase; Develop the ability to enhance the rhythm and accompaniment parts in swing style music; Be prepared to learn more intricate swing beats and play at an advanced level.

Jazz Drumming Essentials and More by Mat Marucci. For Drum Set. Technic. Bill's Music Shelf. Jazz. Intermediate. Book. 76 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.21927). ISBN 9780786677702. Jazz. 8.5" x 11" inches. This book is designed for the drummer who has had some experience playing other styles of music but has a desire to learn some techniques and styles of jazz. It is assumed the reader has a knowledge of notes, measures or bars, time signatures, musical notation, and drum notation. A knowledge of the drum rudiments is also desirable. Though the book is meant as an overview to teach basic and essential jazz techniques, it will take someone who is willing to put in the time and practice from being a total jazz novice to the level of being a competent drummer in the jazz idiom. In addition to learning the essential knowledge required to play jazz, the student will also accomplish many intermediate and advanced techniques. I should note that I wrote this book EXACTLY as I teach jazz drumming techniques in my private lessons. This system has been developed and refined over the years and has given excellent, proven results that have produced some fine drummers, many of whom went on to build careers playing and teaching jazz. I am hoping that this book will inspire the reader and student to delve further into the jazz idiom and develop his or her technique and knowledge to the highest level. And even if the student goes no further in the jazz idiom, I am confident that the book will open doors to other avenues that the drums can take and will be benefit the reader in any style of music he or she chooses to play.

GanJam by Ferdinand "Jelly Roll" Morton. Edited by James Dapogny. Jazz Ensembles. For 2 Alto Saxophones, 2 Tenor Saxophones, 3 Trumpets, 2 Trombones, Piano, Guitar, Doublebass, Drum. Modern, Jazz. Full score. 27 pages. Duration circa 4-7 minutes. Published by Edition Peters (PE.P68279). ISBN 979-0-3007-5735-3. Modern, Jazz. At the end of 1938, Jelly Roll Morton (1890- 1941) returned to New York from his years in Washington, D. C. Recent publicity had made a comeback seem possible, and he hoped to recapture the prominent place in the jazz world that he had held in the 1920s. Still well known, though mainly as a New Orleans music pioneer, he understood that in order to be taken seriously as a contemporary artist, he needed to form a big band like those of his competition, such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey. In the 1920s Morton's recordings and tours featured a ten-piece band following the first-generation big-band format. But in the late 1930s, larger groups were popular, so Morton assembled a conventional '30s band consisting of four saxophones, six brass, and four rhythm. The band was to open at the Golden Gate Ballroom in Harlem on April 17th, 1939, but on opening night Morton collapsed before going onstage. During his recuperation from the asthma and heart problems that dogged him, the band broke up, never to reassemble. Only six items written for that band's instrumentation are known to exist: Morton's arrangements of his own compositions -- Finger Breaker, GanJam, Good Old New York, Mister Joe, and Stop and Go -- and an arrangement, Mamies' Blues, by another artist. -- James Dapogny (Editor) For Jazz Orchestra (Full Score - for the Set of Parts, please see EP68279A).
