Creative Timekeeping: For the Contemporary Jazz Drummer

(Percussion). Combining a variety of jazz ride cymbal patterns with coordination and reading exercises, Creative Timekeeping develops true independence: the ability to play any rhythm on the ride cymbal while playing any rhythm on the snare and bass drums. It provides a variety of jazz ride cymbal patterns as well as coordination and reading exercises that can be played along with them. Five chapters: Ride Cymbal Patterns; Coordination Patterns and Reading; Combination Patterns and Reading; Applications; and Cymbal Reading.
