Quick Overview

The reader will also learn how to put a New Orleans spin on traditional rhythms like mambo, guaguanco, shuffle, and samba. Stanton also teaches the reader how to play between the cracks, bring more inflection and variation to a groove, and how to incorporate a bit of Crescent City flavor into linear playing. Drummers of all styles should pick up this book to improve your groove, expand your vocabulary and learn to Take It To The Street. The downloadable audio includes performances by the Dirty Dozen, George Porter, and Ivan Neville.
