A comprehensive look at the shuffle playing of 1940s and '50s drumming.

Eight years in the making, this "prequel" to The Commandments of R&B Drumming delves into the rhythm and blues of the 1940s and '50s, an incredible musical era when shuffles ruled the airwaves and modern groove playing was in its infancy. Written by Zoro and Daniel Glass, drummer for the Royal Crown Revue, this book is loaded with history, photos, graphics, exercises, and transcriptions, and it includes a comprehensive guide to shuffle playing.
