Elements in Time - DevelopingDanny Raymond - Tapspace Publications
Master snare drummer Danny Raymond's Elements in Time series starts off with the DEVELOPING edition. In this collection, Raymond delivers three intermediate level snare drum solos designed to educate and entertain, qualities which are trademark Danny! In Uncommon Ground, the performer must navigate a series of five-beat phrases. Stick clicks, rim shots, and simple visual embellishments make the piece fun to watch and to play. The Waco Kid is essentially a shout-out to fans of the Mel Brooks classic comedy "Blazing Saddles." The wild west, galloping horses, and big hats all come to mind when listening. Technically speaking, there are a handful of flams to contend with and two moderate triplet roll passages to challenge young cowhands. Transformer, as the title implies, revolves around the performer switching the playing grip back and forth between matched and traditional. Performers will encounter a number of paradiddle-like sticking variations as well as some quick metering changes and short, strictly-metered buzz roll passages. Lastly, there are some fun visual elements that will engage an audience without being overly difficult. A nice, tight collection!
