Straight-Ahead Jazz Drumming provides a step-by-step method devoted to unlocking the mysteries of the jazz drummer's role as an accompanist. Author Jeff Jerolamon has gone beyond the mere coordination patterns that comprise most jazz drumming books to combine informative text, realistic musical examples, and audio tracks that clearly and methodically detail such topics as how to: develop a good, traditional cymbal beat; adorn the cymbal beat with comping figures; play and use basic tension figures; play the cymbal in a contemporary (post 1960) fashion; adorn the contemporary cymbal concept with the rest of the drumset; resolve tensions (resolution points); build excitement behind a soloist; and more. Straight-Ahead Jazz Drumming is excellent for self-study, studio lessons, and college curriculum use.

Following up and expanding on the concepts presented in his best-selling DVD of the same name, Benny here brings forth a wealth of practice material for drummers of all styles and levels, presented in a beautifully illustrated book with a timeless, classic look. The Language of Drumming Book teaches a complete system for achieving freedom of expression on the drumset. Benny's approach is a practical method that is based on a concept familiar to everyone: learning a language. Providing exercises for grooves, fills, independence, and more, this system progresses from rhythmic “letters” and “words” to “syntax” and “language,” ultimately providing an easily understandable system that is suitable for beginning to advanced-level drummers. Included along the way are new hi-hat groove variations, dozens of ghost-note exercises, and a complete system for mastering odd groupings (3, 5, and 7) in your playing.
