A History of Jazz Drumming

My next series of posts will be about Anita O'Day's music, with some emphasis on her drummer and partner-in-Crime, John Poole. These posts will take up where Anita O'Day: Jezebel of Jazz & Drummer's Vocalist left off. Specifically, I am going to launch the series with a focus on Anita O'Day: Eight Classic Albums, which is going to lead to a lot of material.

In the meantime, I wanted to treat you to this great, 44-page booklet titled, A History of Jazz Drumming by Thomas Shultz. I hope you enjoy the history and also hope you will check back in tomorrow for the first installment of my Anita O'Day series.
