Le registrazioni finali del leggendario e influente batterista Buddy Rich sono state fatte il 19 e 20 novembre 1986 al Ronnie Scott’s a Londra e racchiudono ben 2 notti di esibizioni. Quella contenuta in questo CD rappresenta un documento storico di vitale importanza trattandosi dell’ultima registrazione in assoluto del maestoso batterista statunitense. Rimasto inedito per oltre 30 anni e dopo un duro lavoro svolto con passione e amore da parte della famiglia Rich, la musica contenuta in questo CD può ora finalmente essere ascoltata dal pubblico.
The purpose of this book, by Wayne Salzmann, is to give you the necessary tools to develop an authentic musical language on the drum set based on melodic content. The exercises and concepts provided here are designed to inspire creativity and challenge you to reach new levels of awareness and musical ability. Focusing on the melodic themes and phrases keeps the exercises rooted in a musical context rather than focusing only on independence or technical exercises. Using themes and melodies to develop strategies for comping and soloing helps to connect to the phrasing, form, and foundation of the music.
