The Rhythmic Nature of Jazz Part II - The Fundamentals

Presented by Mike Longo, former Pianist and Musical Director for Dizzy Gillespie and protege of Oscar Peterson.

Mysteries and secrets of the masters are revealed in this DVD series. Presents the HOW of jazz from its African Roots. “If you listen to an authentic African drum ensemble you will hear that the time is perfect as well as the rhythm. If you mention to them about “subdivisions” or use of a metronome they would not know what you were talking about. The African drummers are arriving at what they are doing through a natural process and it is that process that a student needs to investigate and absorb.” - Mike Longo
