Hudson Music Master Series

One of today's top R&B drummers, John Blackwell, showcases the playing that has earned him the drum chair with such high-profile artists as Justin Timberlake and Prince as well as international acclaim in his own right. In the first section of the DVD, Blackwell performs with an all-star band and then explains and demonstrates the drum parts. Not only does he discuss the way the song and groove evolved along with the specific techniques that are involved in the performance, he demonstrates the patterns at normal and slow speeds to provide students with a deeper, fuller understanding of the parts and their musical context. The second part of the program covers topics such as playing musically, grooving and embellishing the groove without over-playing, fills and solos, showmanship and independence as well as Blackwell's jazz, R&B and hip-hop roots. A bonus chapter on bass drum pedal technique featuring a rare appearance by Blackwell's friend and mentor, Marcus Williams is also included. Running Time: 2 hours, 26 minutes
