Much like the Rock Drumming Foundation (6 Drum Lessons For beginners) book, this Jazz Drumming Foundation book does essentially the same thing. It provides a complete foundation of the jazz drumming beats you will find yourself playing for many years.
In most part, and this is true for the rock drumming foundation book too… what is written here is basically the foundation. And being the foundation, much like the foundation of a house, it remains mostly unseen. or in our case, the foundation isn’t heard. Or at the very least, only slightly heard, or insinuated through everything else you play around them.
And that analogy is quite applicable here, because what you end up playing as a jazz drummer only revolves around the foundation. It very rarely becomes the foundation.
The Atomic World of Drumming
This is best illustrated if you view the structure of an atom. The atom is made up of a central Nucleus (the jazz beats included here) which is made up of Protons and Neutrons (the various drum parts, bass drum and snare drum for example). You might say that the drum beats within this Jazz drumming foundation form the Nucleus of jazz style music.
Now, although its important for the drummer to be able to play the included jazz beats (Nucleus) very precisely. In jazz style drumming the drummer behaves like the Electron. Electrons are the parts of the atom that continually orbit around the Nucleus. So the jazz beats a drummer masters are then abandoned as the drummer progresses into playing around the central Nucleus, or core.
The Nucleus here is the pulse of the music.
I hope I didn’t completely confuse you or help you form an opinion of me as being completely insane. The analogy was just that. A way to illustrate what real jazz drumming is.
In other words, the drummer learns the basic jazz beats, he then learns the many intricate combinations between the limbs, and then he improvises around the central pulse of the music. The Nucleus.
But before that, it’s now time for you to…
