Tom Morgan - The Jazz Drummer's Reading Workbook
Tom Morgan The Jazz Drummer's Reading Workbook PDF. Without a rhythm section and ensemble to play with, it is easy for a drummer to make errors without knowing it. The Jazz Drummer's Reading Workbook provides written sequential exercises that gradually add new figures and longer summary etudes, all contained on 2 play-along CDs. The goal is to give drummers a chance to play musical examples similar to what they will encounter in the "real world".
This book is full of progressively more challenging ensemble figures up for interpretation. It's great practice for learning to read big band charts (a few of which are included with play-a-long tracks). There are tracks for each of the exercises with and without drums, so you can hear how it's done and pick up some fill ideas as well. Overall, an excellent book.
