Charles Dowd – Jazz, Rock and Latin Sourcebook

This book & CD takes the concept of the drum dictionary to a new level: 100 grooves for drums and bass that explore every style of musical performance are written and recorded for maximum impact. The concept of combining the drums and the bass truly makes this a unique and definitive resource for all percussionists. The groove patterns in this book will provide playing material for the drummer and bassist enabling the development of solid ensemble skills and steady “time feel” in many contemporary styles. Practice your favorite grooves but also practice the myriad of other grooves (and uncomfortable tempos) that are not in your regular performing regimen. Play ALL styles.

  • Rock
  • Funk
  • Soul
  • Fusion
  • Rhythm & Blues
  • Pop
  • Latin
  • Salsa
  • Brazilian
  • Afro-Cuban
  • Reggae
  • World-Beat
  • Jazz

  • Swing
  • Shuffle
  • Blues
  • Country
