DRUMMING CONCEPTS & EXERCISES
"Swingin' the Blues"
Count Basie and his Orchestra, February 16,1938
Papa Jo Jones, drums
This is a transcription of Papa Jo Jones' drumming on "Swingin' the Blues."
As with many of my big band transcriptions, I only notated the bass drum when I could hear a variation or accent. Otherwise, please assume the bass drum is feathering four beats to the bars when the bass player is walking.
