Peter Retzlaff and Ian Froman provide an overview of Jazz playing from early small-group Jazz right up through post-bop and ECM styles. Retzlaff’s section contains a complete approach to ride cymbal playing, ideas for handling turnarounds, and a section on brushes, while Froman tackles approaches to modern Jazz timekeeping. Included are extensive exercises in 3/4 time (an area overlooked by most Jazz books). Explanatory audio examples are included, as well as play-along tracks.
