    A family member wants to learn jazz. Recommendations?

    How about starting out with the all time best selling jazz record, Kind of Blue by Miles Davis. The tunes are highly approachable for a jazz initiate, and the personnel on that record are jazz giants in their own right: "Cannonball" Adderley, Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb, John Coltrane, Bill Evans...

    Sound check: 22" Zildjian K Custom Dry Light Ride

    Exercise: Rhythmic displacement in jazz

    Here's an exercise which was inspired by both John Riley's and Andrew Hare's works. It lends itself nicely to really mastering longer rhythms, drawing more ideas from your rhythmic vocabulary and getting familiar with phrases that flow over the barlines.

    Wilcoxon 150: phrasing drags

    Here's one for rudimental scholars. The Solo No. 42 introduces inverted drag taps as dotted sixteenths and 32nd notes at bar 8. I was wondering what is the proper (traditional) way of phrasing them. So far I've ended up with two possibilities: either play them tight or loose (well duh!). It...

    Some alternative rock tunes featuring my Kumu kit

    Our band, Seed Husk, recorded seven original tunes a while back. I did my parts in a bit of a haste, but overall it sounds pretty good. Take a listen and tell me what you think! I used a Kumu four piece (14"x5,5", 12"x9", 14"x12", 20"x17")...

    It's not about the drums...'s about the drummer. Benny Greb shows how it's done:

    Finally some more steamy Kumu action

    As the title titillatingly insinuates, here's a recent clip from the basement... Aydee, I played that bass drum triple stroke just for you!

    A couple of originals from my pop/rock/indie/prog band

    Have a listen to them here. The page is en Finnois, but I gather you can locate the "play" buttons. PS. I found out it's rather difficult to play rock convincingly if you're mainly a jazz guy...

    At first I totally missed the gloves because I was distracted by THE AMAZING LEVITATING BASS PLAYER MAN!

    Kumu four piece.

    Sound clips ohoy! Here's some shoddy playing after a week's break. The cymbals are the same as in the pictures, plus a Meinl Byzance 16" Thin crash and a Paiste Signature 10" splash. I used just an SM57 to record the whole kit, and added some reverb for some color.
