"Cruise Ship Drummer!"
Wednesday, July 13, 2011
Yikes, another patch of light posting, as I've been busy with other projects. Until I can get something posted later in the day, get your rear over to
Jon McCaslin's blog
to watch and more importantly
listen to a rare Kenny Clarke video
. In case you're not familiar with him, Clarke is the guy who basically invented the
modern usage of the cymbal
, and modern drumming generally. Learn more about him from the
Mel Lewis history of jazz drumming interviews
(another h/t to Jon for linking to that originally), then get yourself copies of
Thelonious Monk Plays Duke Ellington
Miles Davis' Walkin'
, for starters.
