Hey fellow jazz instrumentalists, music students, and all-round jazz consumers, I dug into the Drumgenius app that the fine saxophonist, Tim Armacost recommended to me and found it extraordinarily more interesting than playing with a metronome. Tons of drum styles, tempos, odd meters, and groves in 8 or more repeating bars that you can hook up to your speakers and workout to. Check Byrdlike below along with a 12 bar DG groove in the style of one of my absolute favorites, Ed Blackwell.
While I’ve got you, please do join us for the monthly Pony Boy All-Star Big Band live-stream this Friday, January 20th at 8:00 pm US Pacific Time (UTC-8) on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/@jazzclubsnwboxleys9960/streams
