It is so easy to dismiss a rhythm book as something for beginners, not worth a serious musician’s time and energy. We can already read, what more do we need? I felt this way as well, then I was VERY glad that I did not put this book down after the first few pages. Once you get past the first 10 pages of basics you are left with a book of such creative jazz and rock etudes that you wouldn’t even consider it to have been written with the intention of improving your reading. This is a fully fledged contemporary jazz rock etude book that gets you reading complex grooves that will keep you coming back for more.
