Jazz Drum Solo / Jazz Tune


Hi everyone,

I'm new here. My name is Thomas Grosset and I'm 16 years old.

This was pretty much my first time recording in the studio for my own benefit. I got someone who had a recording studio in their basement to record for me which cost quite a bit but was worth it. I'm pretty pleased with the overall sound of the recordings, but you can't really hear the bass drum very well unless you have some good speakers. There were some timing issues in the playalong, but thats normally what happens with most people.

Jazz drum solo. This solo is being played in a free form, rubato solo style.

This is me jamming with a playalong entitled Blind Faith. This song is from the book called Beyond Bop Drumming by John Riley.

I don't have a teacher so any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for listening.

Hey lastditch,

The solo wasn't supposed to have any sort of structure to it. As a matter of fact, I tried to avoid having an ostinato while I was playing. Lots of people enjoyed the way it was executed while others thought that it might have been better if it had more of a foundation to support it and totally understand that.

I've been playing for roughly 4-5 years. I like to play and listen to many styles of music but I really enjoy jazz the most.

Thanks.

Oh,I understand the solo,it was very well done,the song w/ the full ensemble just really puts a shadow on it.The solo seemed more an exercise to me rather than a solo.I found myself counting most of the time.When I see "solo" i wanna see dude just chucking the wood,you know?Be careful w/ your wording...some people on these forums get very critical...I'm not saying any names...
