Kenny Washington, Drums. A new and exciting and unique way for drummers to learn and practice how to play in a jazz rhythm section and how to accompany a jazz soloist. This book/CD set features 15 solo etudes based on blues and standard chord progressions, demonstrated by different soloists along with a world-class rhythm section: Dave Hazeltine, piano; Paul Gill, bass; and Kenny Washington, drums. The recording features two separate versions of each etude: one with the complete rhythm section and one without the piano. Sit in for Kenny and play along Jim Snidero, alto sax; Eric Alexander, tenor sax; Ryan Kisor, trumpet; Slide Hampton, trombone; or Joe Cohn, guitar. Compatible editions are available for alto and baritone, tenor and soprano saxophone, flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, violin, guitar, piano comping, and bass lines making it invaluable for larger ensemble instruction.

    All Etudes (For Piano, Voice and Instruments too) and pieces of Snidero are wanderful, fine and written for technical training.

  • 2011-10-30 00:00:00.0 No detailed rhythm staff

    I was expecting a detailed rhythm staff since this is an etude book for jazz beginner. But it only has remarks on the lead sheet, such as "Ride Cymbal", "Hi-Hat with stick on 2 and 4 on H.H. stand". So this is not for a complete beginner like...

    me. I recommend to buy a Japanese translation version which has a transcribed rhythm staff.
