          Excellent. This DVD was just what I was looking for. I've been playing drums for many years, but mostly in rock/pop/soul/blues bands. And I really wanted a bit of help getting that 'jazz-jizz'. This DVD is not at all for beginners, but succinctly demonstrates all aspects of jazz and it's complex rhythms, with some delightful demo performances thrown in. It would be great if the DVD offered some extras of all the tunes in MP3 format minus drums for practice purposes, but then you can't have everything I suppose.

          I'm very happy with the prompt service I received in respect of the tutorial Jazz Drum dvd by Peter Magadini. It is all that it claims to be and should keep me happily occupied for some time and will prove to be a good reference work. Thanks Musicroom!!!
