Peter Retzlaff and Ian Froman - Hal Leonard Corporation
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 in most jazz books. Explanatory audio examples are included, as well as play-along tracks.
