Check out the promo for Jazz Drums featuring Ambrose Akinmusire on trumpet.
The “Polyrhythm” album with George Duke / Dave Young and Don Menza has been re-released and is distributed by: City Hall Records
and “Learn to Play the Drumset” Vol.ll – It is a beginning book (for those just starting out ) and becomes
(while slowly morphing into an advanced book) what I have taught to many top drummers in all my years of teaching.
Check out the back cover for all that is included in the book.
Plus it now has video links, to on-line content, throughout the entire book.
Go to: Amazon.com and search “All In One Learn To Play The Drumset”
Both books were popular on their own and this one is all that plus a lot of added new stuff as well. I promise if you go thru it
you will be considered “bad-ass” in the drum community! Plus I am offering a personal diploma to all who complete the entire book.
An up-tempo drum solo build on the changes and form to the Jazz (standard) classic “Cherokee”

He is very happening player and musician!! Ken Lives in Naniamo BC and is equally traveled and also featured on many noted recordings, concerts and festivals. I loved these guys on this!
