Drum Atlas Series: Brazil by Pete Sweeney

Online Review Drum Atlas Series Brazil Book book BOOK/CDs

Brazil is the fifth culture to inspire a book in the Drum Atlas Series, and like its predecessors, this package provides a ground-up approach aimed at understanding each of the country’s rhythmic styles. Focusing especially on the samba, author Sweeney provides a step-by-step approach to mastering the feel, exploring how samba works when making use of cross-sticking, the floor tom, brushes, cowbell, and so forth. The chapter on bossa nova introduces the feel and explains brush patterns. With baiao and several lesser-known regional styles rounding out the book, Brazil is a nice addition to the series. (Alfred) Martin Patmos
