Art Blakey was a Grammy Award-winning jazz drummer and bandleader and is known, alongside Kenny Clarke and Max Roach as one of the inventors of the modern bebop style of drumming.
Through in-depth analysis, detailed transcriptions and album references, author John Ramsay gives us an insider’s view of Art Blakey’s unique drumming style. The jazz drum book includes examples of Art’s philosophies and wisdom as told by some of the great alumni of the Jazz Messengers.
“Art was an original. He’s the only drummer whose time I recognize immediately. And his signature style was amazing; we used to call him ‘Thunder.’ When I first met him on 52d Street in 1944, he already had the polyrhythmic thing down. Art was the perhaps the best at maintaining independence with all four limbs. He was doing it before anybody was.”
– Max Roach
“I’ll play drums until Mother Nature tells me different. I’ll retire when I’m six feet under.”
– Art Blakey
The “Jazz Messages” instructional drum book and CD by John Ramsay is a must have to learn the style of one of the all time great jazz drumming legends, Art Blakey.
