The goal of this play along series is to provide the jazz drummer with play-along and practice material that will be challenging, informative, and musical. The series contains important jazz tunes based on the standard jazz repertoire. While there is no written melody, there are a number of melodies that one can sing over the existing chord changes.
These tunes provide a musical backdrop in honing skills, and allow practice in comping, soloing, trading fourths and eighths, working on ride cymbal sound, etc.
The tempos range from Quarter Note = 100 to Quarter Note = 320. Work in any given order, slower tempos first. A suggested listening list of essential jazz standards and drummers is included.
