Baby Steps to Giant Steps by : Jim Rupp : Peter Retzlaff
Hudson Music has teamed up with Turn It Up & Lay It Down creator Spencer Strand to bring you this series of books to accompany the popular and critically-acclaimed Turn It Up and Lay It Down CDs. Each book in the series represents a custom-tailored appraoch to learning grooves; fills and concepts that can be applied to learning different styles and playing along with the accompanying audio tracks.
This is a complete instructional play-along package with a unique twist! The included minus-drums tracks feature 11 tracks that gradually step up in tempo from 100 to 310 BPM. Based on classic jazz standards; these play-along tunes give the drummer the opportunity to work on increasing his/her jazz drumming facility in a real-world musical fashion. The package contains drum charts and suggested patterns for each song; as well as a lead sheet for each song; helping the drummer to understand what he or she may encounter on a real jazz gig.
Written by two jazz pros; Peter Retzlaff and Jim Rupp; this book also includes a complete instructional method for learning how to play jazz; covering such topics as developing your jazz ride cymbal patterns; feathering the bass drum; learning comping patterns; and playing with brushes. All of the songs and educational topics are accompanied by clear text that explains the concepts; along with an extensive recommended listening discography.
Audio is accessed online using the unique code inside the book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+; a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch; set loop points; change keys; and pan left or right.
