Bebop Syncopation - Modern Drummer Magazine

Bebop Syncopation

In this lesson we’ll build on the concepts we explored in the April 2017 issue by taking a look at the drumming style of jazz legend Philly Joe Jones and applying his ideas to Ted Reed’s seminal book Syncopation. We’ll interpret the first line of Exercise 1 (found on page 38 of the most recently published editions), but be sure to apply the concepts to the entire page and beyond. Here’s the rhythm we’ll be utilizing.
