Bob Moses – Drum Wisdom

Drum Wisdom by Bob Moses, which is inexplicably out of print, is one of the absolute best drum instructional books ever written. With more words written in English than music notation the book can be a bit inscrutable at first. When taken slowly and with the proper focus, though, the book provides a doorway into truly opening the keys to the drum set as a musical instrument that is more than the sum of its parts.
Ostensibly a jazz drum book, this book actually surpasses style and gets to the very heart of what a drummer needs to know to become a thinking and feeling musician. I love sharing this book with students, even if finding copies is nigh on impossible.
