Salsa / Latin Jazz
Think of this book as a style introduction; Today's Sounds for Drumset v.1 demonstrates over the course of 40 pages and hundreds of examples some basic grooves and exercises for rock, jazz, and latin styles of music. After going through this book, any drummer would have enough 'vocabulary' to sit down at any gig and sound right at home.
"This book brings together six areas of discipline that identify key factors to success for the serious drummer: Technique, Reading, Jazz, Rock, Latin, and Musicianship. Many drummers (and books on drumming) tend to specialize in a single genre of music and neglect other critical areas, not realizing the synergies that exist between all six prongs. The Drummer’s Workbook presents all six prongs in a way that can take any drummer—beginner or professional alike—from their current level of proficiency to a much higher ground of playing." - Jay Lawrence
