So, since I wasn't good enough to get into university jazz-studies, I decided to dedicate a year to studying jazz-drumming and drummers. I have recorded drums to 4 different jazz-playalongs, and I'm going to record the same tunes in about a year or so, to see if I've had any progress.
Hopefully, I can get some feedback from all the jazz cats here on what I need to work on(other than my phrasing, vocabulary and timing). I've only practiced traditional grip for 3 weeks now, so it's not nearly as good as I want it to be.
Here's the link to the playlist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbbBh...1RoT508U1hDFfb
