EVOLUTION of JAZZ text book from HUDSON MUSIC
The Evolution of Jazz Drums (Hudson Music)book continues to be well received.
It continues to be a top seller at Amazon.
I hope it provides some insight and useful information for anyone interested in jazz drumming! It’s dedicated to Joe Morello. READ MORE.
New INTERACTIVE MASTER CLASS DVD (True Fire)
The Masterclass Drum Lesson is available from True Fire. It’s a basic course, which features many of the basic concepts studied with my teacher, the late great master drummer Joe Morello, which I in turn teach at the University of North Florida.
TECHNIQUE LESSON DVDs with JOE MORELLO (Mel Bay)
For those interested in specific information about Joe's teachings, I was lucky enough to have been able to record 6 lessons with Joe, with Joe as the instructor and myself as the student. They only scratches the surface, but I am so proud, and we are SO LUCKY to have these videos available. I feel that these are presented on behalf of ALL of the students who passed through Joe's studio during the years . . .
PERFORMANCE DVDs with JOE MORELLO and MARK EGAN (Homespun)
These two DVDs were recorded in Levon Helm's barn in Woodstock, for Happy Traum's Homespun Company, years ago. I stayed after the session editing. Joe went and had a great time with Levon. I am so lucky to have had Joe agree to play a solo on camera with me. His comments were that whenever I ran out of ideas, I played a single stroke roll . . . I probably still do that. I hope these are enjoyable documents and provide some useful information.
BOOKS - Mel Bay
I am proud to have co-authored two drum texts with Michael Green, a fantastic drummer and friend in Nashville. They are available from Mel Bay.
There are 7 other Educational DVDs on the Market from the Mel Bay Company. I hope they provide some useful information, and again reflect the influence of Joe Morello, and the use of his information in my teachings at the University of North Florida.
Thanks everyone, for the support, and all the best of luck.
