(Percussion). Noted drummer and educator John Riley has created an in-depth work for serious students of the instrument. Conceptual topics (time playing, comping, soloing), artist style and analysis (Elvin Jones, Tony Williams and others) and technique (warm-ups, Moeller, etc.) all come together in a fresh, educational and inspiring way. Destined to become an important addition to curriculum. The CD features Riley performing several of the examples.
