Quick Overview

Ed's book and play-along CD are a must for anyone serious about playing musical time in a jazz setting. Drummers with little experience in this style of playing will begin their study with the correct concepts and techniques and develop the proper "basics" for lifelong improvement. The developing player and the professional will find this material so logical that they won't believe how quickly and easily their groove will deepen, their time will be right in the pocket, their ability to swing will intensify and their musical playing and improvising will reach new heights.
