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.

Daily Warm-Up Exercises for Jazz Ensemble, Volume 2. (Drums). By Mike Lewis and Jack Bullock. For Drums. Jazz Ensemble Method; Warm-Ups. Jazz. Book. 24 pages. Published by Alfred Music Publishing (AP.SJ8636). ISBN 0757930107. Jazz. Daily Warm-Up Exercises for Jazz Ensemble was written as a series of studies to aid the jazz group in performance. It is published in two volumes, Volume I for the young or beginning ensemble, and Volume II for the more advanced group. All musical groups need a short period of time during the beginning of a rehearsal to reacquaint their body functions with the needs of making music. Even though individuals warm-up by themselves in preparation for performance, the group as a whole needs to experience basic musical qualities -- blend, balance, precision, intonation -- together to ensure good ensemble performance. Hopefully, this series will provide the jazz ensemble with materials organized in a logical manner to accomplish these goals.
