Let’s face it. Playing gigs in venues that lack a PA system can be a drag....
Alfred Music Publishing, home to the world’s largest percussion print music catalog,
distributes Colin Bailey: Bass Drum Technique, a master class instructional DVD by
Colin Bailey: Bass Drum Technique coaches drummers on speed and control techniques
on the bass drum in order to improve creativity, musical vocabulary, and endurance.
Colin methodically displays his techniques on DVD for the first time through
clear-cut lessons, much of which are applied in special performances with his jazz
trio (John Chiodini, guitar; Jim Hughart, bass).
Colin Bailey is a world-renowned professional jazz drummer and author whose
legendary book Bass Drum Control is still revered as a staple lesson book for jazz
drummers. Lessons based on the time-honored book are included in the Colin Bailey:
Bass Drum Technique via a downloadable workbook. Also included is a one-on-one
Colin Bailey interview with Drum Channel’s Don Lombardi–a must-have for fans of the
distinguished drummer and jazz aficionados.
"Mention Colin Bailey’s name to any jazz drummer and there’s an instant recognition
and an unspoken appreciation of his talent on the instrument," says Steven Cerra of
Jazz Profiles. Colleague and professional drummer Gregg Bissonette says, “I highly
recommend this DVD to anyone serious about bass drum technique.”
Colin Bailey: Bass Drum Technique DVD (93-DV10003001) is now available for $24.95 at
music retail stores and at alfred.com/drums.
