Performing in a big band, and accurately interpreting a big band drum part, can present a challenge to beginning and experienced drummers alike. This book by the founder and publisher of Modern Drummer magazine has been written and designed specifically to help drummers better understand the intricacies of this specialized form of drumming. Time notation, section and ensemble figures, phrasing and fill-ins are all thoroughly discussed, and a wealth of practice examples are included to help players improve their big band drumming performance. An excellent text that gets right to the core of big band drumming. - Louie Bellson
