Wednesday trio jam with Rory and Jim. I will be trying out a new cymbal combination. We are getting much more settled in our sound. Their feedback on my drumming progress is invaluable. Thank you guys.
Annette jazz jam this Thursday late. Drumming with skilled younger musicians is always a highlight of the week. It will be right after the big band rehearshal in Waterdown. Musicians have endurance.
Today I'm organizing my drum practice materials into monthly sets. Benny Greb recommends this, I'm willing to give it a go. And, get the studio wired up for easy recording. I plan to record drums with the drummer-less recordings of Benny Green.
I practiced 4.5 hours of piano last week. Yeah! My practice goal is 15 hours a week: 10 hours of drums, 5 hours of piano. My fingers are happy. What do I practice on the piano? Classical 90% of the time. Last week at Tim's jam the musicians could hear the difference in my jazz playing.
What I'm up to behind the scenes.
